Jim Barry Shiraz Armagh 2006

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

If you like a glass of red on the scale of Mount Rushmore try cozying up to The Armagh. Forget the aroma: At this early stage it s so potently reduced and medicinal you might not venture a taste which is so intense and feral that you might not make it to the finish where the wine explodes with vibrant fruit and a cloud of mineral tannin. It s the bounty of fruit that lasts that coats every pore in the mouth giving a clear impression that the wine will survive for years long enough to grow

Big rich and ripe piling layers of flavor on one another offering mineral-accented black cherry blackberry cola and spice flavors that soar through the long vivid finish. Drink now through 2018. -HS Wine Spectator.

Inky purple color. Explosively perfumed bouquet of blackberry and blueberry liqueur licorice fruitcake incense and dried violet. Lush and creamy but penetrating offering sweet extremely powerful boysenberry and blueberry flavors molten tannins and a sexy note of candied flowers. Refuses to let up on the finish which echoes the sweet blueberry note and leaves spice pepper and floral notes in its wake. I find this more energetic than the wonderful 2005 and 2004 versions.
