Dense and dark in color, with lots of intense flavor but still in proportion, offering blackberry, black cherry and a distinctive twang of floral peach from the Viognier, finsihing with licorice and pepper that lasts and lasts against vibrant acidity and fine tannins. Drink now through 2010.
Not quite as successful as the brilliant 2001 and 2002, but still outstanding, the 2003 The Laughing Magpie Shiraz/Viognier (94% of the former and 6% of the latter) is not as powerful or rich as its two older siblings. Nevertheless, it is an impressive red offering an exotic nose of lychee nuts, honeysuckle, apricot marmalade, blackberries, and cassis. Expressive, full-bodied, and soft, but more superficial than usual, it is a flamboyant effort to drink over the next 5-7 years. (RP)
Ruby-red. Superripe aromas of blackberry, licorice and mint. Juicy, spicy and firm, with dark berry and licorice flavors nicely supported by firm acids. Still a bit tight and youthfully tart today, but this impressively primary wine has the backbone to age. (ST)
