Rockford Basket Press Shiraz

93 Points Robert Parker

This wine, although a softer style than I expected from its inky purple color, is a sexy, rich, flamboyantly-styled Shiraz, although not as outrageously thick and unctuous as several other Grateful Palate offerings. Nevertheless, it is a beautiful wine, with low acidity, extremely ripe fruit, and plenty of the cassis, pepper, and tar that make these old vine Shiraz (this one is made from 30-100-year old vines) so special. It should drink well for 10-12 years.

RP 93 points: Not considered a top-notch vintage but still very impressive, this is a youthful, unevolved wine that seemed every bit as backward as the 1996 and even more youthful than the 1997. Deep purple with sweet creme de cassis notes intermixed with underbrush, creosote, and pepper, very rich, vigorous, full-bodied, and moderately tannic, this is still a baby. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020.
