Kelly’s Revenge Shiraz 2003 is the second product we’ve tried in this series. Like its cab counterpart, this Shiraz is a fairly simple, fruity wine. The aroma has some interesting tobacco and leather notes, but the flavor is definitely in the fruit forward category. This Shiraz features ripe berry flavors with a bit of tartness to keep it interesting. Despite the relative simplicity of this wine, it lingers on the tongue for a good while.
Like the cab, this would be a good wine for casual outdoor entertaining. Fruity and cheap, but not all bad in the flavor category.
