Sokolin 1997 Ralph Fowler Shiraz Tasting Notes:

Who doesn't love a glass of top-notch champagne? The 2005 Dom Perignon has certainly earned its spot among classics. This rose had difficult footprints to follow in, but it did live up to the reputation of this well-regarded name in the wine world.

Pinot noir has a special character which this vintage represents in the most fantastic way. It offers some exciting, exotic aromas that are flawlessly combined with the tranquility brought by strawberries and peaches. If you take your time to savor this gorgeous bouquet in peace, you'll also notice some cocoa and rose petals. The mellow liquid melts as soon as it enters your mouth, expands all over your palate and creates an ephemeral moment of bliss that you'll appreciate while you live. Not every wine is capable of producing such a feeling, and the good news is you'll be able to get back to it again and again for a long time, since this rose's longevity is impressive.

  1. Delicious Shiraz
    Product Rating
    A straightforward but delicious Shiraz that you can’t go wrong with. Some people take this to mean that the wine is simply “one of many,” but let me assure you – the level of quality is not something you run into every day or even every year. It’s one of the closest wines I’ve tried this year to the magnificent 100-point score everyone likes to see.

    The red fruit is ripe beyond belief; my compliments go to the talent that picked the grapes. The texture creates a wonderful feeling on the palate, something akin to a gentle massage. Couple that with the intensity of flavors, and you’ve got the perfect package for a great party. Those parties are exactly why I intend to get more of this wine; my friends listened to me drone on and on about how compelling it is, so it’s only fair that I let them taste it for themselves!
