    May 21, 2016 - Right out of the bottle, she was a bit harsh. But two hours in the air, and she evolved into a beauty. This Aussie version of a southern rhone blend is really wonderful. The fruit was beautiful and strong and all the rest was in fine balance. Terrific for a grilled steak. But do give her time to catch her breath.

    May 16, 2015 - Jammy, full bodied gsm, still fruit despite being 8 years old. Smooth finish that goes on forever.

    December 25, 2014 - Needs a little air time to allow strong tar notes to blow off. After 30-60 minutes, moderate tar and a mouthful of dark fruit notes. Sleek and acidic with little tannin.
