Jim Barry purchased the Lodge Hill vineyard in 1977 and devoted all but a small parcel to Riesling. That small area of Shiraz produced an outstanding wine from the 2001 vintage, earning the badge of Lodge Hill for this single-vineyard bottling. The 2002 vintage now raises the bar.
Jim Barry Lodge Hill Shiraz is 100% Shiraz, deep red in color with purple hues. It is medium-full in body with moderate acidity and soft, ripe tannins. This bold red offers rich aromas and flavors of dark cherry plum, black cherry, pepper, leather, vanilla, spice and mint. Aged in French and American oak, 29% new, it is nicely balanced to enjoy now and over the next 7-8 years. Rich flavors linger on the finish.
