Thick, purple fruited Pyrenees Shiraz with deep, chunky and powerful purple berry fruit and layered with sweet oak. Oh yes, this Blue Pyrenees Section One Shiraz 2018 makes a big statement.
Sourced from the oldest plantings in Section One, this reminds me of the big Warrenmang Shiraz, a reference point, all force and impact and oak and acid. It’s a teensy bit warm and tart to be truly compelling, but the muscular, purple fruited form has the thickness to last for decades, even if I couldn’t quite drink it now. Best drinking: wait five years at least. Blue Pyrenees website. 17.7/20, 92/100. 14%, $38. Would I buy it? A glass.
