PARKER REVIEW
October 2002, Issue 143

BERRYS BRIDGE 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon barrel sample (88-91)
BERRYS BRIDGE 2001 Shiraz barrel sample (89-93)

"From the outstanding, dry, warm 2001 vintage, these are the finest efforts yet tasted from Berrys Bridge. The 2001 Cabernet possesses a pure texture in addition to dazzling levels of blackcurrant fruit. While it has not taken on much complexity, it is beautifully made and pure. Aged in French oak, of which 20% was new, it will be drinkable when released in January 2003, and will drink well for a decade.

Aged in a combination of French and American oak (25% new(), the 2001 Shiraz easily conceals its 14.6% alcohol behind an explosion of huckleberry and blackberry fruit, with hints of mint and oak in the background. Layered, dense, chewy and opulent, it should be an outstanding Shiraz...if it is not excessively fined or filtered at bottling. Anticipated maturity: now -2010.
