Dutschke St Jakobi Single Vineyard Shiraz

Full purple in hue, 2013 is a St Jakobi of voluptuous depth locked seamlessly with well-scaffolded, enduring structure. Signature Barossa black plums, blackberries and dark cherries unite with liquorice and dark chocolate in a magnificently glossy and polished palate, scaffolded with long, fine, taut strands of carefully placed tannins. Benchmark St Jakobi and signature Barossa shiraz, has the even vintage spell of the Barossa been finally broken by this magnificent season? $34 at Bayfields.
