Medium ruby. Cassis, raspberry, violet, pepper and eucalyptus on the nose. Dense, spicy and vibrant, with superconcentrated, sharply delineated flavors of blackberry, chocolate, pepper and spices. A far cry from the literally dozens of dead fruit Shirazes I tasted in recent weeks from Australia. This has superb backbone and lift, and a bright, very long finish. (ST)
The dense purple-colored 2002 Emigre offers a sweet nose of blackberries, camphor, and smoke. Full-bodied, opulent, elegant, and seamless, it is a big, well-balanced red with wonderful ripeness, nicely-integrated wood, and a long, concentrated mouthfeel. (RP)
Rich in texture, almost Port-like in character, lavish in its ripe cherry and berry flavors, finishing so rich it feels sweet. A humdinger to admire, but better drink it with something equally muscular. (HS)
