Heavy on fruit by mouthfeel but short on taste for the price. The flavor was monolithic with everything jumbled together. Even at that it was a pleasant taste but for $50 it needs to Layered and full....It wasn't!
This beauty really opens up after a few hours with blueberry and plum intertwining with spicy notes on the nose. The tanin is still quite grippy, but agree with a previous post about a velvety mouthfeel and really nice long finish. My only regret is opening this now and not waiting a couple more years.
Thoroughly cool climate Australian Shiraz - absolutely no disappointment here. All the depth of an Australian Shiraz but beautifully dressed with elegance and avoiding overstatement. So young and fresh but with an evident balance and integration of age. Darkly fruited and gently spiced. Very good.
was looking for a screw-top red to go with my roast chicken Sunday supper (the Beaujolais we were supposed to drink was corked so I didn't want to take any chances!), and this was the first bottle I found. It is lush, plummy, and velvety at this moment in its evolution. Lots of pepper emerges with air, along with additional blue fruit notes. Lovely, layered flavors and a satiny, lingering finish. Can't say I'm sad the Beaujolais was bad now... :)
