    September 8, 2016 - My palate's moved away from Australian shiraz a bit over the years, so I've decided to experiment a little with the ones I have left by giving them some age to see if they appeal more, and while I never actually had this one young, I can say that it's pleasantly surprising and quite enjoyable at this stage. Pretty dense coloring still. Aromas of dark and dark red fruits, maple syrup, cedar, anise, tar, and dried spice drawer. Very nice and complex. Medium body, medium(+) acid and finish, and flavors of dark red fruits, orange peel, and black tea. There's no tannic grip whatsoever, but enough acidity to keep it together and alive. Pretty enjoyable I must say.

    February 17, 2016 - Cellar clean-up: This wine was tasty -- good fruit and nice tar on the finish as well -- but these bottles are all long gone. Great QPR for $12 / bottle. Drink now if you have them.

    January 27, 2016 - Good, but not astounding. Mature chocolate flavours, highly enjoyable

    March 11, 2015 - Kinda forgot about this one in the cellar. Although a screw top, and 9 years old, it is amazingly good. Very smooth texture and big fruit still.

    March 10, 2015 - Dark Purple Color With Full Body. Some Spice And Dark Fruit on the nose. Licorice and blueberry on the palate and a spicy finish
