2006 Brothers in Arms Shiraz
Deep magenta/garnet in colour. Fresh aromas of raspberries and redcurrants lead into dark fruits then meld with chocolate, liquorice and earth characters. Hints of white pepper-like undertones. The palate is fresh and juicy, comprised of dark cherries and blackberries supported by smooth, chewy tannins that last. This Shiraz will thrive for at least 10 years.
