It wasn't an easy choice this year, it never is. While we tasted a lot of great stuff, and there were a few contenders, this gem takes home the chocolates for a number of reasons, first a foremost among them is that is it great.
This release of Bin 1 delivers a package of sumptuously juicy and immediately impressive fruit that can be drunk right out of the gate, as shown by the number of bottles I have consumed already. It also has a degree of class and sophistication with the inherent stuffing and filigreed tannins to carry it in the cellar for a period as it develops and grows in stature and gains detail. It is a wine that offers an expression of Shiraz that is completely unique to its region. A gorgeous example.
The reason why it got the gong for my wine of the year though, you get all of this for very little hip pocket damage. A touch over $20, it is crazy value. In 2020 who doesn't need great wine that is also great value? That's why this is the Best (terrible pun intended) wine I have had this year. ROSCOE
