First Drop Shiraz Barossa Mother's Milk 2020 (92 points, $20)
There’s a lot to admire in this complex, juicy red, which offers polished tannins and a core of fresh cherry and açaí berry flavors highlighted by notes of dried rose petal, sandalwood, salted dark chocolate and fresh tobacco. A hint of white pepper and a firming, malty Assam black tea hint lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2032. 15,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported. From Australia.—MaryAnn Worobiec
