Spinifex Red Rhone Blend Barossa Valley Esprit 2004
External Reviews for Spinifex Red Rhone Blend Barossa Valley Esprit
Ruby-red. Flamboyant, pungent nose offers a wild combination of ripe red and dark berry aromas, fresh flowers, pipe tobacco, high-grade chocolate and roasted coffee. On the palate, the red fruit element speaks strongest today, even if the finish takes a darker turn toward blackberry liqueur and blackcurrant. Sweet and lush in texture and nicely framed by fine, well-integrated tannins. Finishes with superb length and concentration and a distinctly sappy impression. This highly successful blend should be given at least a few years of cellaring.
The 2001 Esprit, a sensational unfined/unfiltered blend of 66% Shiraz, 14% Cinsault, 10% Grenache, and 10% Mourvedre, is a full-throttle, layered, heady red boasting kirsch liqueur, blackberry, pepper, smoke, and dried Provencal herb characteristics. Its full-bodied opulence is both hedonistically and intellectually satisfying. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years.
