Avery Lane Shiraz 2003 – Washington

Green pepper on the nose, and a range of tastes including mint, lemon balm, paprika, and spice. Ken thought it almost like a Petite Sirah (which is a different but related grape). This is quite different from most Washington state Shiraz, but a nice change. There is almost a tomato-like acidity. Strange, but good. Yes. $5 on sale, usually about $11.
