Tim Adams Aberfeldy Shiraz 2015

A mix of French and American oak has left its mark here: rich, deep and nutty. Black fruit seems almost secondary to the oak, but its presence is felt nonetheless.

Caramel and dark chocolate, and I tried this alongside some 85% cocoa to test it out, tannin is grainy and assertive. There's yet a finesse, a line of assuredness, once you get beyond the initial oak bluster. It will age well, of that I have no doubt. 93 - 2023-2038
