Purple Moon Shiraz

I think this is the epitome of an "average" wine. It is fruity with semi-sweet flavors, low acid and very mild tannins. It's also clean and has a bit of smokey Syrah aroma going for it. But there's no ambition, no individual character whatsoever. While this is perfectly drinkable, in fact easy to drink, it's dull. Like a top 40 pop song, it gets old quickly, though it's simple to enjoy.
