The 2002 Sarah's Blend (a 6000 case blend of 62% Shiraz 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot) boasts an inky purple color full body great intensity and plenty of toasty smoky vanillin notes intermixed with hints of melted licorice figs plums blackberries and currants. Dense low in acidity and corpulent it is a luscious southern Australian fruit bomb of considerable flesh and intensity. Readers seeking delicate restrained introspective European-styled reds should look elsewhere. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. Two of South Australia's leading viticulturists/winemakers are undoubtedly husband and wife Sarah and Sparky Marquis. Their goals are common sense ones of â_ocreating fruit weight velvety sensations and harvesting on ripeness not sugar readings.â__ Perhaps their finest accomplishment has been to prove that high quality wines can be produced at a price point that thrills most wine consumers.P.S. Perhaps another way to think of these wines is that they are XXX-rated stuff. They're not exactly wines for those wanting finesse lightness restraint or intellectual challenge. These are totally decadent homages to joy and yumminess. Or as a friend of mine said they are â_ofragrantly delicious.â__Importer: Dan Philips The Grateful Palate Oxnard CA; tel. (888) 472-5283
