    November 4, 2016 - Nice. On a bit of the lighter side for syrahs. Opened up some over the evening, which perhaps suggests that even at five years out from vintage, it could use a little more cellaring. Not sure. Poor QPR (there are much better, more interesting syrahs out there at this price point). Again, nice, but I was hoping for so much more.

    February 22, 2016 - Lots of oak treatment and alcohol. Inky, bold, full bodied, dark, juicy, black cherry like fruit. One dimensional, sweet, ripe, and firm tannins. I was in the mood for this style of wine. The Aussies have complexity at this price point.

    February 11, 2016 - Color of dark inky red purple. Scents of blackberry. Tastes consistent with scents. Fairly simple wine with a big price tag. I think I like the big Aussie Shiraz better.

    December 25, 2015 - Solid wine - was hoping to get into the 2012, but this showed really well. Great mouthfeel. Meaty. Notes of fig and plum.
