Oliverhill Shiraz Jimmy Section 2006

McLAREN VALE | AUSTRALIA

Jammy blackberry fruit with copper-iron minerality and notes of menthol, bay and orange peel. Full bodied and fruit forward — a high-flying Australian fruit bowl — but missing sufficient earthiness for balance and finish. It’s your friend with all the over-sized promises who never really comes through. A good wine, but only that. (Reviewed 9/17/11)
