The 2001 Greg Norman Reserve Shiraz is a rich, deep, red color, indicating great power and intensity. The nose shows complex layers of fruit with rich, dark plum and blackberry notes complemented by warm earth notes and spicy oak aromas. The palate is full bodied and elegant with dark plum and blackberry flavors complemented by touches of eucalypt and mint. Supple, silky tannins form the basis of this finely structured and balanced Shiraz. This wine would make a great accompaniment to braised spare ribs, lamb cassoulet or a rich venison stew.
Other than the cork which disintegrated on us (took forever to strain the tiny particles of cork) we loved it.
