International Wine Cellar | Rating: 87($50) Red-ruby. Musky aromas of raspberry, cassis and espresso. Sappy and dry, with slightly tart flavors and a green element on the back end; this came off as less sweet than the 2000 St. Henri Shiraz . The tannins are somewhat dry-edged. (Unfortunately, my bottle of the 2001 RWT Shiraz was corked.)Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: July/August 2004
Self | Rating: 89Lots of Blackberry with some cassis on the nose. Well rounded tannins and amazingly well balanced. Moderate finish.Author: MBates 42
