Reviews for 2006 Barry, Jim Shiraz McCrae Wood

JH 95
James Halliday - James Halliday, February 2009
Has a very different flavour register to that of The Armagh; notes of red fruit and mint accompany black fruits; the medium- to full-bodied palate is very supple and smooth.

Lots of everything. Mint bourboned oak sage and dill black fruit licorice some pepper. Full bodied plenty of weight and scale at 15.5 it holds its booze well - would not want to play cards with this baby - ripe tannin... Lots of everything. Mint bourboned oak sage and dill black fruit licorice some pepper. Full bodied plenty of weight and scale at 15.5 it holds its booze well - would not want to play cards with this baby - ripe tannin plentiful acidity a little pumped but fine. Slick of tannin to close. Pretty darn good though of a style.

A back-country Aussie shiraz this has the scent of the bush of blackberries and earth. The tannins have powerful force pushing minerality into the fruit and the sweet liqueur-like alcohol that manages to slow them down... A back-country Aussie shiraz this has the scent of the bush of blackberries and earth. The tannins have powerful force pushing minerality into the fruit and the sweet liqueur-like alcohol that manages to slow them down. The structure melds with air and the flavors drive on unabashedly rustic.

The purple-colored 2006 The McRae Wood Shiraz spent 15 months in seasoned American and French oak. it gives up an alluring bouquet of cigar box Asian spices incense plum and blueberry. Layered ripe and plush on the palate this full-bodied offering is densely packed and concentrated. It contains enough structure to evolve for 3-4 years and will offer a drinking window extending from 2012 to 2021. --Jay Miller

Saturated ruby. Sexy aromas of red and dark berries Asian spices and dried flowers. More forward than the 2005 offering open-knit red fruit flavors and a supple texture. Gains depth and sweetness with air and shows richer... Saturated ruby. Sexy aromas of red and dark berries Asian spices and dried flowers. More forward than the 2005 offering open-knit red fruit flavors and a supple texture. Gains depth and sweetness with air and shows richer blackberry and dark cherry character on the long sappy finish. This is drinking well right now.

This full-bodied Shiraz starts off with blackberry aromas tinged with menthol then delivers concentrated blackberry flavors framed by vanillin oak. It's a full-bodied creamy-textured wine with a long slightly warming...
