Yalumba 2006 The Octavius Shiraz (Barossa)

Cellar Selection

As usual when young, the oak is obvious in the 2006 Octavius, reeking of smoke and cured meats. But there's also balancing raspberry fruit and hints of green peppercorn. This is full bodied and a bit tough and chewy on the finish; give it a few years to soften and integrate. Drink 2014–2020. Joe Czerwinski
