  • 2006 Betts & Scholl Shiraz Black Betty – Australia, South Australia, Barossa, Barossa Valley (2/6/2019)

    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose was a bit vegetal with some roasted meat and a hint of black fruit. Flavors or mint, berries and raspberries. Medium acidity, medium tannin, medium bodied. Drink now. Couldn’t make up my mind if it was over the hill, subjected to poor provenance or simply not that good so no rating.
