Metala Shiraz Cabernet 2012

The Metala shiraz cabernet is a bit of a stalwart in the local wine scene, and for $15 or thereabouts, can be a pretty good wine.  The 2012 vintage tasted here is a good one.  Its aromatics remind of pepper, plum, licorice and earth.  The palate has soft mid range length and licorice and plum flavours. Everything seems in balance.  If they all taste like this, the 2012 Metala is a bit of a find.  Good
