I bought one bottle on release with along with a friend. As he'll never open his <grin - I kid>, I brought this to usher out the new year. This is a stunning Shiraz and while incredibly concentrated was admirably light on its feet too. Packed with red and blue fruits (I was almost surprised by the red fruit character given the rep). Standard descriptors all work here – big, long, complex and yes, balanced. The only thing holding back another point or two is the finish while exceptionally long ended a little on the sharp side for me. I don't doubt that this will be even better in another 5 years and the wine itself might be immortal.
