2001 Paracombe Shiraz Somerville Adelaide Hills
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Syrah/Shiraz
Region: Other Australia
90 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2005
($85) Opaque inky ruby. Superripe, assertive aromas of kirsch, dark plum, fig cake and coffee, with exotic hints of sandalwood, clove and cinnamon. An outsized and densely textured shiraz whose 16.2% alcohol gives a glyceral, unctuous texture to the sweet, concentrated flavors of blackberry, cassis and chocolate. There's considerable power and a brooding quality to the finish, which features powerful tannins and a roasted plum quality.
