The prodigious 2002 Shiraz Apricot Block (only 10-year-old vines) was produced from fruit cropped at 1.5 tons per acre. Its big peppery floral blueberry blackberry pen ink and vanillin-scented bouquet is followed by a wine with a nervous energy that is totally in keeping with the cool 2002 vintage. Dense with great purity of fruit a fabulously multi-layered full-bodied palate and an inky finish with enormous concentration sweet tannin and superb overall balance this young unevolved Shiraz should begin to strut its stuff in 3-4 years and last for two decades.
