Community Tasting Note

  • ikkaariainen wrote: 93 points

    November 3, 2018 - Our last bottle of six and almost a decade since I wrote a TN on this wine. Time has been very very kind to this wine - now well balanced, much softer and completely mature / in a great drinking window with probably another at least 2-3 years+ left at this level with proper cellaring. Probably no further upside to further cellaring and definitely recommend starting to drink up any remaining holdings. We loved this last night, highly recommend it and at our original acquisition price of at around $40 / bottle this is now a great QPR wine - thought about bumping up the score another point. Good mouth feel, one of the softest Aussies we've had, smooth, much less jammy and intense then in it's youth, very well balanced with remaining tannins now well integrated and fading. This last bottle was popped & poured at a restaurant, would recommend a short 30-60 min decant. Dark purple to black color with some peripheral bricking. Nose aromatic and dark with balanced dark fruit, eucalyptus and more smoke then the tar I remember from previous bottles. Primary flavors include dark stone fruit, black currant and rasoberry up front with darker tones of licorice, tar, terroir and black pepper on the mid-late palate. Very long pleasant lingering aftertaste.
