Wine Alpha Crucis, "Titan" Shiraz, 2015
Reviews of purchase Alpha Crucis, "Titan" Shiraz, 2015
The wine is deep purple with red highlights.
The taste of wine is thick, velvety, with notes of blackberry and black currant, hints of grass, tobacco, black pepper, toasted rye bread, a cigar box and a long, expressive aftertaste.
Lively, fresh aroma of the wine is filled with tones of black berries and ripe plums, hints of spices and earth.
The wine goes well with meat dishes, sausages, pasta, cheeses.
