Winemaker Notes

The 2004 Armagh is black-purple in color. It displays a nose of lifted, aromatic, blueberry/blackberry cassis, cedary oak, spice and complex, underlying savory characters. The palate is huge and dense, with fully integrated oak, yet still featuring complex fruits of plum, blackcurrant, blackberry and black cherry. It shows deep, brooding consistency, with the flavor and texture of chocolate mudcake.

This wine is ideal for long term cellaring. It is suggested that the wine is allowed to "breathe" a minimum of two hours before being consumed to fully appreciate the distinctive flavors and aromas.

Jim Barry
From the heart of South Australia, Jim Barry was a legendary and beloved Clare Valley identity. Since 1959, Jim Barry Wines reflect the Barry family's commitment to making table wines with an emphasis on quality and enjoyment. Jim Barry's philosophy of winemaking was very simple: own the vineyards to develop the best fruit flavors possible and retain these flavors during winemaking. The rich, full-bodied Jim Barry wines distinctly embody this simple winemaking philosophy.
