    December 14, 2014 - This has aged beautifully. Gorgeous purple-red hue with a soft and spicy palate and vibrant finish.

    July 4, 2014 - Meaty, gamey notes. Medium bodied, and down right austere when compared to a Aussie Shiraz consumed at the same dinner. This could have used a decant, as it was pretty tight and restrained on opening. Still young.

    March 2, 2014 - Blew me away with its combination of power, complex fruit flavors and tannins. Should get even better with age. Decanted for 1 hour

    October 28, 2013 - Decanted for 3 hours. Ruby red color with medium depth. Powerful aromas of raw, gamey meats, black currant, fuel oil and fresh cut violets. Tart acidity with high, dry tannins. Black ink, tar-like on initial taste. Really opened up toward end of night with black olive and luscious black & red fruits One of the top 5 bottles we've ever consumed!

  • Vini Ciclismo Likes this wine: (95 points)

    October 21, 2013 - Incredibly rich earthy scents, roast meats, tar and licorice spice, violets, pepper, sweetly perfumed.
    Deep flavours, very long finish, velvety lush middle. A gorgeous wine, stunningly good. Perfect balance. Flavours are precise and very distinct, with real personality.
