Jim Barry 2015 The McRae Wood Shiraz (Clare Valley)

In typical Clare Valley fashion, this is both muscular and fresh, due to the region's unique climactic conditions. Heady notes of ripe plums and brambly berries are backed by secondary characters like beef jerky, savory herbs, boot polish and oak-based vanillin. The palate is powerful and chiseled with elevated acidity and taut, drying tannins. Fruit is concentrated and supported by plenty of oak. Protein and decanter are both necessities here.
