Kay Brothers Amery Vineyards Hillside Shiraz 2001 Cork 750ml
91 points by CellarTracker 93-95 Points by Robert Parker
The opaque purple-colored 2001 Hillside Shiraz (1,000 cases) possesses low acidity as well as extraordinary dense, chewy notes of blackberries, blueberries, melted licorice, creosote, smoke, and earth. Although it is not yet revealing many nuances, it is spectacularly concentrated, with fabulous flavor extraction, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. This monster should rival the 1998.
