Auld Family Wines, William Patrick, Shiraz, Barossa, 2016

Lifted dark blackberry and plum fruits with sweet oak edges well supported with light anise spice, a meaty ferrous hint and a light menthol coda. The palate medium full with savoury/sweet/herbal black jelly bean and dark raspberry fruit. Tannins are raw and mouth coating and persist throughout a long tight finish. All angles and elbows for the moment, a jigsaw of pieces that will come together.
