Opened up an Australian Shiraz this afternoon from Benefactor Cellars. I searched high and low for any info on the winery that is responsible for this Shiraz and, for some reason, they remain hidden from view. After having a sip, I can see why. Very flat and lifeless, not much fruit and very dry. The alcohol level is at 13%, so it's not a hot one, but it just doesn't present much to like. Hey - you get what you pay for.
