|Picardy Shiraz 2002|
Another wonderful example of the Picardy Shiraz, reminiscent of the 2000, but with more opulence, silkiness and greater mouth feel. The nose has hints of chocolate and coffee, earth, plums and some intriguing high-toned floral aspects.
The palate is marked by excellent concentration of the above characters along with suggestions of toasty oak and hints of white pepper. Structure as always is excellent, with plenty of acid and exceptionally well balanced, fine tannins. Bill and Dan feel that this wine shows strong resemblance to the wines of Cote Rotie.
