95 Points - Rich Cook February 06 2015

"After winning a Platinum Award and a 93 point score at the 2014 San Diego International Wine Competition, you'd think that the marketplace would have scooped up the remainder of this stunning Shiraz from winemaker Elena Brooks. Fortunately, the wine makes a return trip north and lands another Platinum Award at the 2015 SDIWC, and adds two points to last year's score to boot. This is one sexy beast of a wine, with its high toned mix of red and black berries complimented by vibrant pepper and leaf notes. Supple tannins and singing acidity help extend the finish and keep the flavors balanced. 95 Points" Rich Cook reviewed Dandelion Vineyards Red Queen of the Eden Valley Shiraz 2012 Jan 27, 2015
