Josh Raynolds in Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Issue 175 July/ August 2014 Best New Wines from Australia

Scarlet Runner Shiraz 2013

Vivid purple.  Fresh cherry and dark berry aromas are complicated by notes of cola and pipe tobacco.  Chewy and broad, offering bitter cherry and cassis flavors and a zesty note of peppery spices.  Closes sappy and very long, with a hint of bitter chocolate and youthful tannic grip. 91
