2002 Mr. Riggs Shiraz

SKU #1005675 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aged in 80% French oak and 20% American (of which 60% is new), this barrel sample (to be bottled in November) was immensely impressive. There will be 400 cases of this dense inky/purple-colored Shiraz. It offers a gorgeous nose of licorice, melted road tar, blackberry liqueur, and sweet black currants. There is dazzling palate persistence, tremendous texture, and full body, but the wine is neither heavy nor out of balance. The finish lasts for 45+ seconds. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2003)

95 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Concentrated, opulent blackberry fruit encased in a delicious wrapping of dark chocolate; has chewed up the French oak in which it was aged; fine ripe tannins; power with finesse. Inner quote mark (1/2044)
