Wakefield 2017 Jaraman Shiraz

This is one of those special wines you should find a way to enjoy over the holidays; be it with dinner, or on its own; it won’t cost you an arm and a leg and it will impress all you serve it to – unless you horde it all for yourself; and while you see Wakefield wines come into the LCBO all year long the Jaraman is something to take note of. It’s a blend of Clare Valley and McLaren Vale fruit, and sees 30% new American wood which really pumps up that flavor profile: smoky and blackberry lead things off adding in eucalyptus, and mocha finishing off with a spicy cherry linger. Don’t pass this one up, and if you an under-$20 wine buyer, spend the extra fiver for the holidays and you won’t be disappointed.  Rating: ****+
