Brothers In Arms Shiraz Langhorne Creek 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

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)

Brothers In Arms, the essence of Langhorne Creek, evolved from five generations of grape growing tradition. The vines my great-great grandfather planted in 1891 led to the estate vineyard known as “Metala” vineyard, recognised as one of the most famous in South Australia. The Brothers in Arms label, released in 1998 is rich in old vine fruit, some as old as 118 years! For years one of the wine industry’s best kept secrets, Langhorne Creek is now a strong premium wine producer in its own right. The “blood” that flows through the veins here is red ~ Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. This is red wine country. Read less

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.
