Aramis Single Vineyard McLaren Vale Shiraz

Having achieved that magic threshold of 12-13 years of age, Aramis’ shiraz vines sang in the great 2010 vintage. There’s a density of black liquorice, fragrant blackberries and plums, underscored by the dark chocolate of French oak. Excellent poise and structure is created by firm, fine tannins of impressive texture and length. $22 at Wine Box Warehouse.
