Shiraz The Armagh, Jim Barry Wines 2001

Tasting Notes

Although the 2001 Shiraz The Armagh will not be released for another year, readers should keep an eye out for it as it is a profound Shiraz. It boasts an opaque purple color in addition to a tremendously rich bouquet of melted licorice intermixed with scents of camphor, blackberry liqueur, and new saddle leather. Massive and full-bodied, yet impeccably well-balanced, this enormous 2001 should provide riveting drinking for 15+ years.
