Greenock Creek Seven Acre Shiraz

95 Points Robert Parker

The 1997 Shiraz Seven Acres is another big baby that goes on and on in the mouth. Soaring aromas of creme de cassis, smoke, blackberries, new saddle leather, and earth are followed by a layered, multidimensional wine of great purity, richness, and length. At age 12, this seems like a 2- to 3-year-old wine, and while critics might ask “where’s the complexity?”, everything remains intact, and my instincts suggest this, like its siblings, is a 30+ year wine. These wines tend to be drunk entirely too soon, and are often written off before they have ever had a chance to develop fully.

The opaque purple-colored 1997 Shiraz Seven Acres Vineyard offers a knock-out nose of cassis liqueur intertwined with cherries and licorice, great intensity and purity, huge body, and layers of glycerin that coat the palate. The wine's low acidity and gorgeous fruit make it irresistible now, but it will develop more complexity over the next 7-8 years, and drink well for two decades.
