2010 jim barry, the armagh shiraz, clare valley
Why We're Buying
The Armagh Shiraz represents the apex of Australian winemaking. This brainchild of Jim Barry has earned the highest possible rating in Langton's Classification of Australian Wine. After trying the 2016 vintage, wine critic James Suckling said, "Wow… Really impressive now, but this will deliver much more over the next two decades. One of the finest releases to date."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet with a touch of purple, the 2010 Shiraz The Armagh offers a beautiful black fruit core, yielding notes of crushed blackberries and blueberries, with an undercurrent of coffee and spice box, plus touches of earth and raw meat. Full-bodied and built like a brick house, it has concentrated, very youthful fruit that reveals many layers in the long, long finish.
