    February 8, 2020 - The spread of leather and earth through the finish is impressive. Mineral tannins still abound. Quite drying. Oak largely resolved, save for a touch of char through the finish. Red and black cherry. Length is good. I get the feeling it could go either way from here- it’s slightly drying out but still a fair bit of vital fruit, clay like tannin and freshness. But alcohol is rising through the finish. Will keep my remaining bottle for 3 more years and look again. Is certainly in its drinking window. 4 out of 5 today on a pop and pour. I look forward to trying the rest tomorrow. Chewy salt and pepper tannins and length are a highlight. Am tempted to increase the score one or two as it opens in the decanter.

    July 28, 2019 - Aged Hunter fun (Frank's place in Matraville): Earthy, plummy, spicy, peppery, alcohol heat. Juicy, slightly smoky, plummy and spicy; black pepper, tight, floury textured tannins.

    April 2, 2019 - Drunk over 2 nights. It improved on the 2nd night.
    Cherry, tobacco and plum on the nose.
    Palette of dark cherry, plum, mint and chocolate but tannins are slightly greenish.
    May still need a few years to reach it's peak.

    March 16, 2019 - Dark colour, pepper, dark chocolate, plum, tobacco. Medium plus body, fine heavy tannin. Classic aged hunter Shiraz.

    December 27, 2018 - Consumed over two nights. Still youthful in colour and bouquet. A delight on the palate, more red berry (cherry) than plum, light spice, a dash of vanilla, soft tannins and light acid. Great across the palate and nice length. Delicious drinking now and would likely have cellared much longer. One of the better Hunter Valley Reds. 92+
