    March 30, 2019 - Greatly enjoyed this Coonawarra Cab. Nose is deep cheery, rustic. Taste is a tart black forest cake. Would benefit from a few more years in the cellar but drinking nicely.

    February 25, 2019 - A better bottle. The balance was there, with some classic Coonawarra characteristics - eucalyptus, mint, mocha, blackberry.

    January 18, 2019 - Nose of Eucalypt pepper and dark fruit, Rich blackcurrant fruit - a lick of tingling acid - lovely spice and drying oak balanced by the body which doesn't allow the alcohol to poke out- a very impressive wine in the old style and still has plenty of legs

    August 26, 2018 - Dark purple. Dark plum, cherry, mocha, menthol, dusty/oak and blackcurrant. Nice medium long length, lacks complexity.

    August 13, 2018 - Drinking very nicely 10 years in. Enough fruit and acid to go longer, though a comparative lack of complexity makes one wonder if waiting will bring out more than it is showing now.
