- Closure: Cork
This first crop displays the cabernet-like chicory greens which are typical of juvenile vineyards; in fact, it's a bit like the first ever Seven Acre Shiraz. But the tight blackberry and blackcurrant fruit that lies below doesn't take long to get audacious, and that uprising of fruit even seems to take on plum and peach flesh. The palate's long, slippery and slender, with coconutty oak, and fine, firm acidity. 88+; now – 2008

"A backward wine is the 1998 Shiraz Apricot Block. Made from relatively young vines (7 years in age), this 100% Shiraz shows an opaque garnet/purple color and a sweet nose of melted asphalt, smoke, blackberry, and cassis. Extremely full-bodied with great intensity, tremendous purity, and impeccable overall harmony among its rather large-scale elements, this dense, super-extracted wine should be at its best between 2001-2020.
