  • Intense color, deep ruby core, light ruby rim.
    The nose is funky but good funky. I got Tobacco, blackberry, black figs, blueberries, leather and a pronounced smoky character.
    Dry, high tannins, medium + acid, flavor profile confirm the nose. High alcohol, it seemed balanced.
    Nice length, interesting wine, I feel intrigued about it, I had it at a tasting event, a bit rushed, I would like to spend some time with a bottle to go deeper into this wine.

  • Herbs and more herbs on the nose. A little sweet cherry, mint, herbs and maybe rubber or tire on the palette. Tannins well balanced and evolved well. Not an Aussie fruit bomb at all, very nicely done and would defiantly buy more, if I can find it.
    The wine looks Ruby colored.
    The legs are Slow.
    It smells like Dust, and Mushroom.
    It tastes like Mint, Stems, Dust, Mushroom, Forest floor, and Cherry.
    The body is Medium/Full.
    The wine is textured Polished.
    The wine finishes Long.
