September 13, 2014 - This wine offers so much ... blueberry, fresh forrest, beautifully done oak ... but it's one fault is its stinging attack.

September 7, 2014 - Surprisingly good. Nuanced and balanced. I expected this wine to be bigger than it was. Felt more old world vs new. Very pleasant flavors - good finish.

August 30, 2014 - A great example of what's unique about Australian wine. Grenache is the most widely planted grape in the world, yet this is as distinct as it is sublime when grown in the red earthen outback. Strong, complex berry flavors, but more nuanced than its Kangarilla and Blewitt Springs cousins, this this is rich without fat, luscious but not sweet; this is a great wine.

April 12, 2014 - This was simply outstanding. The blueberries and cranberries absolute leaped out of the glass, reminding me that a wine can be phenomenal and not have to carry the weight of cabernet, merlot, syrah, or a blend of the aforementioned. Not only was the wine very food friendly, it was an absolute joy to simply sip on it all alone. Well balanced, great mouth feel, and a finish that was long and persistent all night long.
