Jim Barry

This is a big, full-bodied Shiraz, shows colours of inky, ruby red and crimson. The nose displays intense aromas of black fruits: raspberry, blackcurrant and plum. These flavours are supported by complex aromas of tar, asphalt, liquorice, oregano and lavender. The palate is unreserved in its flamboyancy. The initial arrival shows flavours of blueberry, tobacco, nutmeg and cranberry. The departure displays coriander, sage, vanilla pods and cinnamon. A wine made using the Jim Barry method and as such can be enjoyed upon release but would equally benefit from a rest in the cellar to allow the wine to show some mature characteristics that come with age.

Wine Advocate

The purple-colored 2006 The McRae Wood Shiraz spent 15 months in seasoned American and French oak. it gives up an alluring bouquet of cigar box, Asian spices, incense, plum, and blueberry. Layered, ripe, and plush on the palate, this full-bodied offering is densely packed and concentrated. It contains enough structure to evolve for 3-4 years and will offer a drinking window extending from 2012 to 2021.

Score: 91. —Jay Miller, December 2009.

Wine Enthusiast

This full-bodied Shiraz starts off with blackberry aromas tinged with menthol, then delivers concentrated blackberry flavors framed by vanillin oak. It's a full-bodied, creamy-textured wine, with a long, slightly warming finish. Drink now-2018.

Score: 90. —Steve Heimoff, February 01, 2010.
