Jim Barry Lodge Hill Shiraz 2008

Jim Barry's "The Lodge Hill" shiraz from 2008 is an ultra-ripe wine. It has an aroma of pepper, oak and plums. Tasting it, it has frankly very good length, if a touch rich. The oak was a bit obvious too. That said, it's very pleasant, will probably last and is quite a bargain for its price.

Rating: Good to Very Good, Abv: 14.5%, Price: $19, Vendors: www.wine-searcher.com, Website: http://jimbarry.com/, Tasted: 2011
