    June 1, 2013 - Big fruit. Silky smooth. Very long finish but minimum tannins.

    March 19, 2013 - Christopher Carpenter produced wines (Fix St. James, 111 Elizabeth Street, Sydney): Deep ruby with considerable tears. Medium plus intensity aromas of concentrated, but not jammy, black fruit - quite savoury in fact. Slight bacon fat/sulphur notes, some oak but under rather than over the fruit. In the mouth the wine is medium plus acid and pronounced tannin that have massive grip, ripe and chewy. Black fruits carry on the long finish. The fruit is nestled under the tannin for the duration, spice notes. Needs a long, long time...Glorious, absolutely wonderful.

    February 28, 2013 - The most fruit forward of the big 4 we tasted (Harlan, Schrader, Colgin) - blueberry, sweet cherry, licorice, stone with zippy acidity. Seems a little young but everything is there.

    October 20, 2012 - 100 RP BYO Tasting (Restaurant AOC): Nose: Intense plums, oil, olives.
    Juicy plum flavors with a power structure but still cool fruit. Lovely long and complex aftertaste.
