Bremerton Old Adam Shiraz 2009

Opens to a touch of stewed plum over rich, dark, coffee-ish oak.  A hint of dark chocolate in the mix too, it's rich and concentrated.  It's a similar scenario in the mouth where it shows itself as smooth, thick and rich with a luscious mouthfeel.

Tannin is fine grained; tarry elements with camp coffee essence, layered - somewhat multi-faceted against these recurrent themes.

Long, plenty to mull over, with a christmas cake full of spicy rich fruit carrying you home.  Pretty much a big is best wine, yet all in balance.  92/ 93 - Very Good
