Jim Barry The Lodge Hill Shiraz 2008
This wine has deep, dark red/black hues, lifted aromas of mulberry, raspberry, coffee and kirsch. The bramble, chocolate, methol and rosemary fl avours that fi ll the mouth are present in abundance, with delicate, sensual and ripe tannins playing a structural role. This wine is ideally suited to good food, good friends and good conversation.
The Wine Advocate
The 2008 Lodge Hill Shiraz offers intense notes of warm blackberry, spearmint and licorice with an earthy undercurrent of loam, tar and tree bark. The rich, medium to full bodied palate is nicely balanced with crisp acidity and a medium level of gritty tannins, finishing long. Drinking now, it should continue to give pleasure to 2016+.
