Deep garnet with a touch of purple, the 2010 Shiraz The Armagh offers a beautiful black fruit core, yielding notes of crushed blackberries and blueberries, with an undercurrent of coffee and spice box, plus touches of earth and raw meat. Full-bodied and built like a brick house, it has concentrated, very youthful fruit that reveals many layers in the long, long finish.

Cork closure. Dark crimson. Well integrated and fresh with lively minty layers. Dry end but serious ingredients. I wouldn’t pay the going rate, I fear, but it’s good wine.
