2002 Henry's Drive Shiraz Padthaway South Australia

SKU #1005583 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The dense purple-colored 2002 Shiraz is even better than the Cabernet Sauvignon. Pure blackberry liqueur intermixed with camphor, lead pencil shavings, pepper, and earth notes jump from the glass of this full-bodied, unctuously-textured monster. This opulent, hedonistic 2002 boasts great richness, intensity, and length. How will it age? Although still youthful, it offers fabulous drinking at present, should improve over the next 3-4 years, and last for a decade thereafter. However, there is no reason to defer your gratification. To quote importer Dan Philips, 'this winery is all about pure, exuberant fruit buttressed with extraordinary winemaking.' (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2004)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full ruby. Mocha, cedar, truffle and strong nutty oak on the nose. Fat, sweet and thick, with a strong saline character along with truffle, vegetal, smoke and meat notes. Finishes with firm tannins. A distinctly heavy wine with little sign of fresh fruit or vinosity, recommended only for fans of the type. Inner quote mark (8/2004)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Broad in texture, with ripe, almost raisiny berry and dried cherry flavors, finishing with a smoky note on the polished finish. Inner quote mark (9/2004)

K&L Notes

Made by Sarah and Sparky Marquis of Marquis Philips fame. The Shiraz is decadent, and in words used often by Parker himself, a tour de force in winemaking! The Cabernet is more elegant, but still showing gobs of cassis and black fruit and an inky, opaque color.
