    September 20, 2014 - Ok, wife's score wins out this time. :-p

    May 18, 2014 - Typifies a decent modern down-under Shiraz with highly extracted black fruit, enjoyable finish with not much in the way of depth of character. Definitely more enjoyable than the alcoholic Knotts Berry Farm in a bottle variety that I tend to detest. While it lacks the structure & complexity of my favorite California Petites it was still enjoyable and worthy of 90 (mine) 91 (wife's) score - perhaps due to its excellent paring with grilled rib-eyes & veggies.

    April 20, 2014 - Deep purple color, black licorice on the nose and roasted coffee, wet tobacco, cherry cola and ripe, black fruit in a flavor profile that wraps your mouth in a succulent fruit bomb explosion with a velvety finish. This is not our favorite varietal, but it does exceedingly well what it's supposed to do as a humongous Aussie shiraz and it paired well with grilled rosemary and garlic lamb chops and cream cheese, caramelized onion mashed potatoes.

    August 18, 2013 - Tasted immediately after opening. Almost black. My note of nearly a year ago still applies "Ripe black fruit and licorice nose. Blackberry, blueberry and licorice flavor with a little pepper in the long finish. Fresh and delicious. Power rather than finesse." The only difference in the taste this time around is a touch of salinity in the finish. The last bottle overpowered a grilled steak. Tonight it matched well with a deluxe pizza. I know, it's a little pricey for a pizza wine but it works.
