Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier 2005
"The Y series has never been better than it is in 2006, with this gem (my Quaff Wine of the year) plus the 2006 Riesling (my pick as best of the variety under $15) and the 2006 Viognier (as good as it gets at this price). The 2005 Shiraz Viognier has restrained, and therefore neatly integrated, oak, rich, concentrated dark plum and black cherry flavours, a smooth texture and fine ripe tannins. Perfect with spaghetti, meatballs and a ragu Bolognese."
