The dense purple-colored 2002 Shiraz is even better than the Cabernet Sauvignon. Pure blackberry liqueur intermixed with camphor, lead pencil shavings, pepper, and earth notes jump from the glass of this full-bodied, unctuously-textured monster. This opulent, hedonistic 2002 boasts great richness, intensity, and length. How will it age? Although still youthful, it offers fabulous drinking at present, should improve over the next 3-4 years, and last for a decade thereafter. However, there is no reason to defer your gratification. To quote importer Dan Philips, 'this winery is all about pure, exuberant fruit buttressed with extraordinary winemaking.' (RP)
Full ruby. Mocha, cedar, truffle and strong nutty oak on the nose. Fat, sweet and thick, with a strong saline character along with truffle, vegetal, smoke and meat notes. Finishes with firm tannins. A distinctly heavy wine with little sign of fresh fruit or vinosity, recommended only for fans of the type.
Broad in texture, with ripe, almost raisiny berry and dried cherry flavors, finishing with a smoky note on the polished finish.
