Small Gully Mr. Black’s Concoction-Shiraz-Viognier-Barossa Valley-Australia-2006-$14.99-A nose of dark fruit and heat, dark purple in color.  A full bodied but way too hot Shiraz blend, dark cherry, cassis, licorice flavors but the heat overshadows the fruit, got better the second day but the 15.9% most likely 17% alcohol is still noticeable.                   RP-91                    CR-86                       Good with ribs, chicken, pasta.
