Bleasdale Shiraz Langhorne Creek Bremerview 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Bremerview is the name of one of Bleasdale's vineyard blocks on the banks of the Bremer River, which runs through the heartland of Langhorne Creek. Many of the vineyards surrounding this river still rely on the flooding of the Bremer River to irrigate the vines on the deep alluvial floodplain. The summer preceding the 2004 vintage was cooler than average in Langhorne Creek. The season produced a perfect balance between all climatic factors to produce wines of an exceptional quality seen typically only once a decade. From the exceptional 2004 vintage comes this Shiraz, showing intense varietal characters of dark cherries and ripe plums, complexed with fragrant spice aromas and toasty oak characters as a result of 15 months maturation in American hogsheads and barriques. Although Bremerview is drinking well now, with generous fruit and typical soft Langhorne Creek tannins, it will also develop earthy and chocolaty characters if cellared for 5-6 years.

I was hoping I'd like this more due to its price point, given that I usually agree with Parker, and he scored this a 90. The front palate of fruit blackberries and white pepper spices gave me some hope. However, the following oakiness, heat, and imbalanced acidity made this not as pleasurable to sip. There was some lingering garrigue-type tastes to this. Probably attributable to the fact I found out later on that this is a 100% shiraz - which I usually do not like, so I may be biased.

Intense and fruity.

3.5 is certainly fair. I do not have the sophisticated nose to opine on blackberries, white pepper or acidity, but I enjoyed drinking it much more than most straight shiraz, especially in this price point. It is well worth $14-20, with reasonable fruit, structure, and a pleasant finish. Great for a barbecue as well.
