Peter Lehmann Eight Songs Shiraz 2008
Deep and succulently-fruited, with mulberry, fruitcake, licorice and a fine seasoning of toasty oak; the palate is richly textured and warm, but maintains freshness and complexity for a big impact, big boned style.
Dark and brooding, delivering a dense mouthful of dark berry, plum, peppery spice and licorice notes that come together on the medium-weight finish, which lingers with intensity. Best from 2014 through 2020.
Deep ruby. Dark berries, cola and woodsmoke on the nose. Aeration brings up suave mocha and candied rose qualities that carry onto the palate and complement sweet blackberry and cherry-cola flavors. Ripe and seamless shiraz with very good finishing cling and intensity. This big boy will go well with a strongly seasoned, grilled steak.
Tailored along crisp lines, this opens to reveal scents of mint, leather, eucalyptus spice and red fruit. It has Barossa character without any excess weight, a balanced take on ripe shiraz. Age it further, or decant it now with roast lamb.
