Wine Advocate | Rating: 92Burge's top Shiraz is no longer designated |Reserve,| but is blended into the |Premium| Draycott cuvee. The rich, full-bodied, dense purple-colored 2000 Premium Shiraz Draycott emerges from a vintage that is not as highly regarded as the 2001 and 2002. The 2000 is a lavishly concentrated effort offering aromas of sweet blackberry jam intermixed with acacia flowers, pepper, and spicy new oak. Aged in equal parts French and American oak, it is opulent, full-bodied, and pure, with an impressively layered texture. Already gorgeous to drink, it should evolve for 7-8 years, possibly longer.Author: Robert Parker
