Jorgensen Hill Shiraz 2008

I found this wine initially had a rather unusual aroma, which reminded me a little of tinned tomatoes.  With time, it revealed a scent of sucrose like sweet, ripe fruit.  I struggled a bit to put my finger on the palate initially too, but dried fruits with an almost brown sugar like note came to mind.  With time, a rather thin wine was revealed with uneven piquant acidity.  I am afraid this wine is not to my taste.  50 points.
