Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Shiraz from Jim Barry opens with a fragrant blackberry jam and spice drop bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, round and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced blackberry with notes of spiced plum. I also detected hints of oak and black raspberry tea towards the end. The finish is rather dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. This very good value Shiraz would pair well with braised short ribs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine is a deep red with a bright magenta hue. Vibrant aromatics of red and black berry fruits, a lift of violet florals, clove spice and mixed garden herbs. The palate is dominated by a lively burst of berry fruits, which are well framed by fine, powdery tannins. Juicy plum and blackberry flavors persist through the finish, with sweet spice to close. This wine is ideally suited to good food, good friends and good conversation.
