Brothers In Arms Shiraz Langhorne Creek 2001
91 points Robert Parker: More backward as well as more concentrated and layered than the 2000, with additional up-side potential, the 2001 Shiraz reveals a dense inky purple color along with a pretty nose of vanilla interwoven with acacia flowers, blackberries, and licorice. Full-bodied and opulent with a structure not dissimilar to some 2002s, give it 1-2 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 12-15. (Aug 2003)
External Reviews for Brothers In Arms Shiraz Langhorne Creek
Rich and delicious, a lip-smacking mouthful of blackberry, currant, blueberry and plum flavors wrapped in a blanket of exotic spices, with hints of coffee and chocolate. Tannins are fine and chewy. Drink now through 2015.
From a good but unexciting vintage, with 2000 Shiraz is a strong effort. Produced from 100% Shiraz, and aged in both Americana and French oak for 16-18 months, it exhibits aromas of loamy soil, blackberries, currants, pepper, and spice box. Full-bodied and ripe, it behaves more like a Cabernet Sauvignon than a Shiraz. It will drink well for 5-6 years.
