2000 Evans & Tate Margaret River Shiraz

2000 Evans & Tate Shiraz, Margaret River (cork): 14% alc. Medium to very dark crimson/red. Dusty and earthy nose with violets and black cherry matched to spicy, cedar/graphite oak; the palate’s medium-weight with the same dusty/earthy ripe berry fruit and spicy oak characters with a touch of minty warmth mid-palate, but there is also an ever so slight hint of green dampness on the finish as well as the nose. With breathing the slight cork taint gets noticeably stronger - a pity as I got the feeling this could have been an excellent wine.
