Jim Barry Shiraz Armagh 2008

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Deep garnet-purple in color the 2008 The Armagh Shiraz opens with intense notes of kirsch warm black cherry black raspberry and mulberry with overtones of pepper and spice and a bit of truffles and mocha. Slightly prune-like on the very full-bodied palate it is rich with lively acid and firm velvety tannins. It finishes long and spicy. Drink it now to 2028+. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Deep crimson-purple; the bouquet is seductively complex multi-fruit spice and oak aromas playing tag with each other; the full-bodied palate continues the game with lush black fruits and fine savoury tannins in perfect balance oak and alcohol seamlessly woven into the core of wine. The cork is good and well-inserted but will prejudice the wine post 2030. James Halliday.

Prune toasty wood purple fruit liquorice floral notes. Liquor cassis and berry notes fine intense tannin dark chocolate and savoury wood. A little drying sweet pruney finish. Show a minor amount of heat but covers it. No shortage of length or power.--Gary Walsh Wine Front.
