Langmeil Barossa Orphan Bank Shiraz 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Woodsy and herbal on the nose with light spice notes accenting black raspberry fruit. This smells faintly oily of resinny wood as well, with some violet notes framing the fruit and an interesting candied, apricot edge. Nice and bright in the mouth with modest but sufficient tannins framing out the unusually red fruited mid-palate. There are some nice herbal top notes here, along with a streak of vanilla and gentle framing spice tones. The backend shows off some slightly harsh wood tones that take hold a bit of the somewhat short finish. With air, the finish gains a nice aromatic quality and nice red plum fruit emerges to complement the generally austere tannins. This is better than it sounds! 91pts
