The 2002 is 100% Shiraz aged 18 months in 100% new French and American oak. It boasts an inky/blue/purple color as well as extraordinary uplifted aromatics of acacia flowers ground pepper espresso roast blackberries cassis chocolate and smoke. This stacked and packed full-bodied Shiraz possesses formidable concentration moderately high but silky tannin and a finish that exceeds one minute. A modern day legend it should easily evolve for 20-25 years.

Kaleidoscopic intensely perfumed nose offers red and dark berries strong Asian spices and pungent herbs with licorice mocha and a sexy rose quality emerging with aeration. Lush and creamy with deeply concentrated but fresh cherry and cassis flavors accented by vanilla bean and exotic chocolate. The finish features slow-building tannins and lingering traces of dark berries vanilla and roasted coffee. Wonderfully suave balanced and pure wine with the depth to age but the sex appeal to give early pleasure.
