Very nicely done. Aromas of red fruits and apricots emerge from bright garnet wine. Palate of red fruit, blackberry and peppery spice in a silky package, with a nice fresh lift in the mid-palate. Medium finish on this wine, but it's so bright and lively it's impossible not to like it. And I did. This one was under a cork; some are Stelvin and it would be interesting to compare.

The 2001 Shiraz Four Roads reveals the vintage's superb ripeness and density. Some Grenache was added to the blend for softening. This unfiltered offering reveals a murky purple color, and a luscious, sweet perfume of black fruits intermixed with notions of licorice, pepper, and earth. Full-bodied, fleshy, and loaded with both fruit and glycerin, it should drink well for 6-8 years.

A good value, the 2002 Four Roads is a blend of 81% Shiraz, 14% Grenache, and 5% Viognier. I tasted a cork finished bottle side by side with a screw cap bottle, and the screw cap revealed more intense aromatics as well as fresher fruit. I actually rated it two points higher (that's not the first time this has happened with a Stelvin-finished bottling). The screw cap offering exhibits a deep ruby/purple-tinged color along with hints of apricots, black pepper, kirsch, and black currants. A medium-bodied, supple-textured, fruit-driven red, is ti ideal for drinking over the next 2-3 years. This is an impressive as well as realistically priced offering.
