The Yalumba Barossa Patchwork Shiraz 2010 is dense dark purply red in color. The aroma exhibits a mix of fresh bright berry compote fruits, dark plums and violets intermingled with a savory complexity. This is a full-bodied Barossa Shiraz that shows richness, density and concentration. Rich dark jube fruit flavors fill the palate and are balanced with fine acidity and round, earthy tannins.
Try with pork rib ragu and rigatoni.
"Inky ruby. Oak-spiced blackberry and cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of licorice, vanilla and cola. Lush, sappy and open-knit, with sweet dark berry preserve and vanilla flavors lifted by gentle acidity. Closes on a sweet note, with lingering mocha and licorice notes. On the oaky side but there's a lot of rich, fleshy fruit here as well.
