A deep, rich, dark-hued wine with intense blue and black berry fruit flavors driven by great acidity
Delicious with pork, wild boar, and fowl (think how delicious cranberry sauce and turkey is). Shiraz is big in alcohol, so it will crush more delicate dishes. So keep it away from most white fish dishes, and instead pair it with something that is suitable for its heavy body like thick stews. Speaking of alcohol, remember that is high in alcohol is a big NO with spicy hot foods. You are just putting out that fire in your mouth with gasoline.
