Alpha Crucis TITAN Shiraz 2010
Well okay since we are talking “make a statement” vino. Mine is a real Titan! It’s actually called the Alpha Crucis Titan Shiraz 2010 from McLaren Vale, Australia.This is a great name for a great wine! First of all “Alpha Crucis” is the brightest star in the Southern Cross constellation. The Alpha Crucis TITAN wines are so named to create the finest wines from the best areas of their vineyards which were established in 1897.
So this full bodied wine had nuances of beautiful complexity, with ripe cherries and bright raspberry combined with savory, toast and gamey elements, with a bright acidity and softer tannins. The finish doesn’t finish for a while….Thumbs up for my wine, in vintages for $24.95
