Jim Barry Shiraz Clare Valley the Lodge Hill 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

89 points Wine Advocate: Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Lodge Hill Shiraz gives notes of black cherries, blackberries and black plums over freshly cracked black pepper, dried Mediterranean herbs and lavender. Medium to full bodied and with very crisp acid, it fills the mouth with vibrant berry flavors textured with a medium level of fine grained tannins, finishing long and a little herbal. Drink it now to 2016+. (Feb 2012) -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Acidic little beast...With that many awards on the side of the bottle, I was hoping it would be better blended. Disappointing. With a little time breathing, it became more tolerable, preventing it from being poured down the drain,

Ripe and distinctive for balancing its black pepper and red pepper flavors against ripe currant and blackberry fruit, mingling harmoniously on the refined finish. Drink now through 2018. 6,000 cases imported. -HS Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Lodge Hill Shiraz gives notes of black cherries, blackberries and black plums over freshly cracked black pepper, dried Mediterranean herbs and lavender. Medium to full bodied and with very crisp acid, it fills the mouth with vibrant berry flavors textured with a medium level of fine grained tannins, finishing long and a little herbal. Drink it now to 2016+. Opaque ruby. Blackberry liqueur, dark chocolate and licorice on the nose. Densely packed but supple in texture, offering powerful black and blue fruit flavors and a hint of peppery spice. Smoke and bitter chocolate notes build on the finish, which is long and gently chewy. Give this youthful wine some air or a couple more years of bottle age.
