Jim Barry The Armagh Shiraz 2006

Jim Barry's flagship wine, The Armagh, is yet again an amazing wine.  A heady aroma of pepper and crushed spices.  The palate had length of more than 30 seconds, with tannins evident.  My only unease is that the alcohol level is higher than I would like at a bruising 15.6%, though the wine is in balance.  An outstanding wine.  95 points.

Abv: 15.6%
Price: $205
