Earthworks Shiraz 2008
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 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 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.
