  • I really enjoyed this although my wife (who loves Oz wines) wasn't impressed. Inky purple. Decent nose. A huge second fermentation going on that fades with about 2 hrs of a decant. Rich black and blue fruit. Complex. Very long teeth staining finish but not an over the top wine.

  • Full bodied intense integrated black and blue fruit. Alcohol has mellowed somewhat but still has legs.

  • Popped & Poured. Consistent with previous TN from several years ago but doesn't require a lengthy decant any longer. Beautiful, elegant Shiraz that has aged really well and is still in it's prime drinking window.

  • Wow ... this is good. Didn't really have many expectations for this bottle as it was from a so called weaker Barossa vintage and follows the fantastic initial 2002 release. Not much on the nose but on first tasting well-balanced came straight to mind. Plenty of up-front black fruit married nicely with a flavoursome tannic, drying finish ... that lasts. Definitely a full bodied style of wine, but has a quality behind it that makes you want to refill your glass. RP said this could be one of the leading candidates for Barossa's "Shiraz of the Vintage" and according to this bottle he may just be right! Drinking well now but no need to rush ... well cellared bottles should last for at least another 10 or so years. For $35/bottle on release, that is real bang for your buck.

  • Similar to the last bottle... Plums, some cedar, spice on the nose. Concentrated and still a bit jammy on the palate, but with smooth integrated tannins and great length. Excellent with the BBQ food we had for Christmas-eve dinner!
