A rush of mulberries and blackberries then comes spice, florals and coffee grounds with a whiff of eucalypt. The palate is finely tuned, medium-bodied with supple tannins and some grip on the finish.

Blended of 65% Shiraz, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Malbec, the 2015 The Barry Bros sports a deep garnet-purple color and a nose of crushed blueberries, blackberry pie and licorice plus hints of tar, chargrill, tilled earth and garrigue. The medium-bodied palate delivers a lot of fresh, vibrant fruit, framed by chewy tannins and a lively backbone, finishing with lingering earthy notes.
