he product of a cool vintage, Hickinbotham's 2017 Brooks Road Shiraz is a tart, intense offering. Scents of mixed berries and pastry crust mark the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is tight and taut, juicy but a bit ungenerous. The finish suggests more potential, offering mouthwatering acidity and fine-grained tannins. I'd suggest holding this for at least another year, giving it time to relax a bit and reach its potential.
