The spectacular, dense ruby/purple-colored 2003 Shiraz G. A. M. (named after the Mitolo family’s three children) exhibits aromas of lead pencil shavings, blackberries, blueberries, cassis, licorice, new oak, and scorched earth. This complex 2003 comes across as a hypothetical blend of a great La Mission-Haut-Brion from Bordeaux and a Rhone Valley Hermitage such as Chapoutier's Pavillon. Everything is seamlessly integrated into this tour de force in winemaking. (RP)
Herb and spice edges to the aroma; full-bodied, powerful and dense blackberry and bitter chocolate palate fruit; controlled but ample tannins.
Tightly wound, obvious underlying fruit richness. Sweet and dense in the mouth and masses of fruit. Great balance of oak, acid and tannins.
Very dark crimson. Very perfumed, fragrant and peppery. Quite salty. A little pinched on the finish – dry rather than sweet. A very nice whole.
