Brothers in Arms: big, bold and lovely

Really like this wine, despite its monstrous alcohol level (15.5% alcohol). It’s really well put together from some very decent fruit.

Brothers in Arms No 6 Shiraz Cabernet 2005 Langhorne Creek, Australia
15.5% alcohol. Deeply coloured. Sweet nose is spicy, tarry, herby and intense with a hint of mint alongside the rich plum and blackberry fruit. The palate is dense, rich and spicy with lovely bold fruit. Quite lush but showing lovely spicy savouriness. Full on but I like it a lot. 91/100 (£12.20 Tanners, who have the agency for this in the UK)
