    January 7, 2017 - This wine is getting better with age.

    Nose is slightly sweet and fruity.
    Palate is dry, tobacco, cassis with a hint of spice. Very typical of a dry (non sparkling) clare valley red.

    Drunk slightly chilled and got better as it was open for an hour.

    December 27, 2014 - End of year sparkling wine tasting: Salami, cherry, spice and rhubarb. Red fruit sweetness across the whole palate, with medium length. Nice but a little bit was enough.

    February 18, 2011 - 2011 Sydney Royal Wine Show - Exhibitor's Tasting (Olympic Park, Homebush): Silver medal {cork} Jubey, slightly jammy aromas, with a touch of tobacco. There’s a whiff of sweetness on the palate, not too much, and rather furious bubbles. Oak is subtle. Medium weight, this is entertaining rather than profound, and needs to be served at the correct temperature to show its best. Sound, but not terribly exciting.
