SKU: 99296-2001-750-3A
  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($40) Medium ruby. Fresh crushed blackcurrant, dark cherry, peat, cigar box, tar and a meaty suggestion of iron on the nose. Meaty and chewy, but also endowed with ripe, deep berry flavors and a vaguely licorice quality. Conveys an impression of strong extract. Finishes with sweet, subtly oaky suggestions of charred meat and anise, with the tannins substantial but well-judged.

    The deep ruby/purple-hued 2001 Shiraz St. Henri offers sweet aromas of raspberries and flowers. This accessible, concentrated, medium-bodied, impeccably-balanced Shiraz possesses excellent fruit as well as background earth and wood notes. Consume it over the next 10 years.

    Very firm and chewy, with a strong gamy edge to the ripe cherry and spice flavors, finishing with hard tannins that need time to soften. 3,800 cases imported.
