Alkoomi Jarrah Shiraz 2009

Built to last. Unlike many things these days.

Smooth, structured and has this lovely undercurrent of flavour, a citrus/ sour/ tang with good acid pitch. But balanced. Poised, that's possible a better way of putting it.

Opens with a rich, chocolatey, oak driven aroma in the mix with good red fruits adding to the overall package. The tang forms the finish, slowly fading. Quite delightful. 92 - Very Good

Tasted on: Friday 7th June, a Fruit Day
Source: Sample
Price: $39
Alcohol: 14.1%
Closure: Screwcap
