Earthworks Shiraz 2008
Wine EnthusiastCreamy in texture and deceptively easy to drink, this Barossa Shiraz features a veneer of baking spices and vanilla layered over a fruity foundation of ripe blueberries. Drink it over the next several years.
Wine SpectatorBroad and ripe, with a freshness to the plum and berry flavors as they play against crisp tannins and an earthy, minerally bite. Best from 2012 through 2018.
Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Shiraz has a deep garnet-purple color and moderately pronounced warm bramble fruits aromas, though slightly baked, with an undercurrent of anise and earth. Structured in the mouth with medium-firm chewy tannins and high acidity, this concentrated wine gives a long finish with a hint of coffee coming through. Drinking now, it should keep to 2014.
