2014 Roseworth McLaren Vale Shiraz

Fragrant and expressive, with oodles of baked fruit, raspberry, blackberry, cinnamon toast and sweet vanilla, this forward, fleshy, fruit-driven wine is classic McLaren Vale and an absolute joy to drink. The wine's subtle notes of black olive with a hint of lavender and black sage accent this heady wine perfectly, making it a beautiful match for smokey, Texas-style barbecue. Be sure to have plenty of friends and family around to enjoy this delightful red.

Did You Know?

Many people credit Italian immigrants for bringing Zinfandel with them to California. It actually arrived in New York, first, via Austria; in the 1820s, Zinfandel was used as a table grape and for raisins. Gold rushers brought Zinfandel cuttings wtih them to California about 25 to 30 years later, and planted them to make wine.
