For pairing, definitely big meat dishes, BBQ, and stews. I would wager that it would also pair well with Peking duck.

Stonewell Shiraz 2002, Barossa Valley
Aged shiraz is amazing. The wine filled the room with plum and lavender aroma as soon as it was opened. It's creamy, mouthful, and the flavor evolves in your mouth. Oh, and a long delicious finish. I am currently braising a couple lamb shanks to finish the bottle with. Worth every penny. I will definitely invest in a few more bottles of different vintages.
