WineKnurd Does not like this wine: (79 points)
November 21, 2015 - Nov 21st 2015 "Getting the Band back Together" Tasting at Adam's (Phredd's Casa): Sheila's wine (she also brought the 2007 as a comparison). Super-jammy and extracted blueberry-cherry pop-tart filling that burned on the finish and was at least 89 octane. Label says 16% abv but I have to assume they were just guessing. In case I wasn't clear, I found the the alcohol to be tremendously overbalanced. Evaluation C. Prompted a hilarious metaphor- "this is what Obamacare tastes like to JohnR", as an exaggeration of the style in terms of current political rhetoric.

August 15, 2015 - knows a fruitcake and Anise. Soft tannins and well integrated while the alcohol is not too hot. Dark fruits with a hint of chocolate on the finish. Tasted much better day two after had time to air out in the bottle.

August 4, 2015 - Tons of fruit and tons of smoke and tobacco. It's unique for what it is, for sure.

July 27, 2015 - I brought this to a party with many non-wine friends. I found this to be typical Australian shiraz, relatively mellow and round but still quite fruity. Others liked it a lot more, probably for the flashy fruit.
