86pointsHugh Hamilton 2017 Jim Jim The Down-Underdog Shiraz (South Australia)

This is a ripe, chocolaty Shiraz that oozes plum cherry and blackberry fruit along a spine of dense mocha oak and earthy, peppery spices. The palate veers into jam territory, and the wood sits heavily over the top, a little bitter at the finish. Tannins are muscular and raspy, drying out the mouth. A good lick of acidity brings some much needed freshness. Christina Pickard
