JOHN DUVAL Plexus Red Barossa Valley 2016
93 points, $40
Harmonious, complex, dark and rich, with supple, sink-your-teeth-into-them tannins and a heavy mocha accent, smoothing out the core of blueberry and blackberry flavors. Whiffs of campfire and mahogany add to the interest, lingering on the finish, with an air of effortlessness. Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2032. 2,000 cases imported. —MaryAnn Worobiec
