    October 17, 2017 - Double decanted in the AM for sediment, then drunk over several hours.

    On the nose, at first there is dill and vanilla,a but it becomes less upfront. It's meaty and savory, but with fruit and subtle florals: dark berries, herbs and violets. Great texture and depth without any heaviness. On the palate, it's savory, with olive, a little menthol, and white pepper that add to the meatiness and dark berry fruit. Quite long on the back end and still with tannic structure. A beautiful, classically made Shiraz. For me, this is still on the ascent and I suspect may come together even more in time.

    September 16, 2017 - This just isn't a wine I like.

    August 6, 2017 - Mrs H (a New World shiraz-phile) liked this much more than me. Probably nearing the end of its drinking window. I've never really taken to this vintage of Michael - perhaps it's just a bit lacking all-round.

    September 27, 2015 - This is a 21 year old wine ... would not have picked it in a blind tasting.

    Bright red colour with hints of dark purple.
    Nose was dark fruits and mint. Developed cigar box and smoke characteristics.
    Palate was dark fruits, slight sweetness from the oak with very fine tannins.

    The wine seemed very fresh - I did buy it and have stored it well since release.

    February 18, 2015 - Pop and pour. Still quite youthful. Great structure with eucalyptus, lavender, blackfruits and hints of vanilla and mint.
