The cooky (chooky?) rooster & shed label on this bottle drew me in, and I'm glad it did. This wine has a thick body that just clings to the side of the glass. The nose is present, and pleasant, but a bit sneaky too. Flavor-wise, it's hard to narrow down, other than to call it rich and grapey. Drinking note: I'd give this one some extra breathing time - more than your typical Syrah/Shiraz would need.
