I had the pleasure of drinking this wine with its maker Peter Barry at his 50th Birthday in 2009. Finally I waited long enough to try a 98 past its 10th Birthday. Armagh is a single vinyard wine from the Northern end of Clare. As a young wine is is usually too tannic with explosive fruit to drink. The top Armagh vintages require at least 10 years to be in a good mood for drinking. There is a really strong backbone of excellent Clare fruit which has still got an excellent blackcurrent flavour, but the wine is now starting to develop nice secondary flavours from the Oak and fruit integration and chocolate and almost nutty falour is beginning to come through Excellent example of the wine Pete is trying to make.

Clare shiraz at its richest and most concentrated. This may already have reached its peak. Sweet fruit with a little portiness poking thru, oak plays a part (american) in adding some coconut to the sweet cherry and bitter chocolate characters.
