Clonakilla Hilltops Shiraz 2005

Clonakilla's well priced 2005 Hilltops shiraz has been ageing away at home for a few years now, and is frankly, starting to get very interesting.  It has developed a rather wonderful aroma of herbs, leather and red fruits, and pepper with a bit of time in the glass.  The palate has a bit of length, with good fruit, and peppery notes. 87+ points.

Price: low $20s
