Shiraz The Armagh 2005 Jim Barry
€ 150,04 (incl. Vat)
Deep garnet in color with a touch of purple, the 2005 The Armagh Shiraz presents enticing smoked meat, black currant preserves and dried mulberries on the nose complemented by notes of charcoal, mocha, nuts and spices making it overall a little funky. Medium to full-bodied with rich, savory fruit concentration, it is framed by medium to firm, grainy tannins that lend a taut and muscular character to the long finish.
Rich, ripe and beautifully focused on its boysenberry, pomegranate and rhubarb flavors, which persist through the long, expressive finish. The firm tannins get a bit of a grip on the finish. Needs cellaring to soften.
