    August 8, 2015 - A deep inky purple. A rich nose of kirsch, tomato leaf, and mint. Really huge in the mouth, but soft and with some real elegance. Lots of fruit, but also has other subtle tastes of herbs and mocha woven in. There's oak, but fully integrated and provides the necessary backbone. Wish I had more than I do.

    August 4, 2015 - The wine is unmistakably Aussie, with its big fruit profile and jammy nature, but it is also more driven by its structure and chewy mouth feel. The lack of heavy filtration really lends some great texture. The wine is drinking really well right now. Dry, medium acidity, medium+ body and alcohol and medium velvety tannins that travel right across the mid palate. The fruit is dark and brooding with notes of blueberry compote, blackberry and black cherry.

    August 26, 2013 - Very smooth and well integrated. More fruity and less spice than typcial Shiraz.Very easy drinking but did not have a lasting finish with a kick.
