Aramis Vineyards Black Label Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Black Label, like black diamond ski runs, clearly means better and more hardcore in the scheme of things, which is hence why this sits a the pointy end of the Aramis heirachy - because it is quite hardcore. Hardcore rich, hardcore full bodied, hardcore delicious. Perhaps the only non hardcore bit is the soft edges thanks to a little extra bottle age.

Winemaker's Notes

A rich and ripe Shiraz, with intense dark berry fruit flavours and a good helping of mocha and liquorice. Our characteristic earthiness shows through on the palate, along with a hit of white pepper spice, all backed up with an elegant tannic structure and seamless smoky oak. This deep, full bodied Shiraz is drinking beautifully but will continue to reveal its stunning secondary characteristics for many years to come.

WINESTATE (2005 Vintage) says
Smouldering dark cherry/licorice nose with secondary characters developing. Well-structured palate with generous bright fruit flavours, good astringency and a long, lingering finish.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Deep, inky red-purple; powerful and deep, but supple; a well of black fruits and spices; controlled oak, good tannins.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Dense, opaque purple; strong, spicy, peppery wild herb aromas; powerful, dense blackberry and bitter chocolate fruit; a slight hole in the mid-palate, still resolving itself.
