May 16, 2015 - Three hour decant, the nose comes across with graham cracker, cinnamon and blackberry. The palate has fine grained tannins and somewhat tart acidity with the distinct flavor profile of Shiraz. The Viognier definitely plays a part in changing how this tastes, an interesting blend.1 person found this helpful Comment

October 28, 2014 - This has rounded out beautifully in the last year, now showing lively ripe black and red fruit and warm toast on the nose, with a palate of dusty black raspberry and fine acidity. Juicy and lasting finish with a hint of black pepper and some saline minerality.

October 5, 2014 - This was a close-out special at $7 - so it was a bargain price. I was not expecting much - and it is much better than that. The wine is dark red in color, with a slight nose of black fruit. The taste is pleasant with plenty of tannin but not much fruit. This would go well with food, but it is not a sipping wine.

June 1, 2014 - Very well constructed at a very good price. Vanilla and other aromatics. Spicy Syrah fruit. Good finish. Nothing to fault but a fairly simple fruit driven wine.
January 26, 2014 - Tastes more like a Crozes than Australia, violets, blueberries, liquorice and iron filings. Nice and balanced, good value.
