Archetype Shiraz Barossa Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Layers of opulent red berry flavors, with a touch of mocha and smoked meat, this wine has all the characteristics of classic Shiraz from the Barossa Valley. Minimal vineyard irrigation, low yielding vines, and a variety of vine ages (5 years to more than 50 years) gives this Shiraz its layers and fruit intensity, but with a graceful balance.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Severely lacking acid. Nose was jammy. The beginning of this wine was very sweet with a lot of heat. Finishes a little dryer but still too hot. Drink this wine chilled if you have to at all.

    I found this to be a 7 1/2 in a 1-10 "delicious scale". I can sense the 48% Australian shiraz coming through nicely into the cab side. I'm glad I purchased two bottles of this '06!
