    July 17, 2016 - Excellent aspects such as firm tannins and length. Would have preferred a fuller body.

    June 20, 2016 - Had this against the 2012 which was better. This was a bit flat and too soft, decent length but was missing that SA Shiraz lush fruit. Ok but get the 2012 instead.

    April 29, 2016 - Very smooth and paired well with pulled pork BBQ.

    March 1, 2016 - Clear, deep intensity, ruby color.

    Dark and almost inky nose with a medium(+) intensity. Really heavy on the fruit - black plum, cassis, blackberry sauce, dark cherry, cedar, cigar, warm soil, spice box, oak and a hint of vanilla.

    Full bodied with smooth, medium(+) tannins and medium acidity. Medium(+) intensity with almost sweet black fruit, leather, oak and vanilla.

    Well-crafted but all this fruit makes the wine uninteresting and a bit one-dimensional. Sure, the quality is really high but it doesn't get me excited. Still on the young side and will benefit from further aging.

    January 23, 2016 - First of the lot of these 375ml. Had planned to drink it a year or so ago but these small bottles were hiding in a corner. Paired nicely with baked salmon.
