Parsons Flat Cabernet-Shiraz Blend Padthaway Shiraz Cabernet 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Robert Parker: This blend of 65% Shiraz and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon from 10-year old vines cropped remarkably high for the resulting quality (4 - 4.5 tons of fruit per acre) represents a 700-case pleasure bomb... it displays tremendous full-bodied, intense cassis flavors, low acidity, ripe tannin, and that tell-tale Sarah/Sparky Marquis seamlessness, opulence, and voluptuousness. The inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a pure, alluring, enormously satisfying Australian red that may reveal even more complexity over the next 6-8 years. (Aug 2003)

This blend of 65% Shiraz and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon from 10-year old vines cropped remarkably high for the resulting quality (4 - 4.5 tons of fruit per acre) represents a 700-case pleasure bomb. Although it is stunning, I am a little concerned about ... Robert Parker. A Proprietary Blend wine from South Australia in Australia. 2001 Parson's Flat Cabernet / Shiraz 750ml
