Stellenbosch Vineyards Shiraz Stellenbosch 2018 $19 (90 points)

A juicy, medium- to full-bodied red, with hints of chocolate and warm spices lacing flavors of cherry pâte de fruit, red licorice and singed orange peel. Reveals a savory waft of grilled herbs and smoke, which gain momentum through the midpalate and join lightly chewy tannins on the finish.
