Wine tasting note: 1996 Jim Barry Armagh Shiraz

1996 Jim Barry Armagh Shiraz

20th Jan 2000 GBP45 Australia Table Red

Opaque purple/red with viscous purple legs. Very concentrated nose of violets, eucalyptus, cassis and cream - some hot alcoholic notes - a slab of a wine. Very full bodied with sweet mint/chocolate flavours balance by lemon acidity. A tang of spicy oak and tannins lurking under the fruit. This is still a monolith but Wow! Give it at least 5 to 6 years.
