    July 25, 2020 - 25.7.2020:++ sehr kräftiger und gut gereifter Shiraz, Chassis und Sauerkirsche, noch präsente Tanine, eher säurebetont, Pfeffer dezent, leicht mineralisch, nicht mehr zu komplex, sehr gut aber etwas teuer für den taste

    2013 AUS$47.75 für ½ Flasche; Zigarre, Leder, weißer Pfeffer, sehr lang, marmeladig, komplex

    November 7, 2019 - Clear, deep ruby.
    Clean, medium (+) nose of blackberry, blueberry, white pepper, vanilla, charred wood.
    Dry, medium (+) acid, high ripe chalky tannins, (very) high alcohol, full bodied, pronounced flavour intensity with blackberry, blueberry, white pepper and charred wood all with a long spirity finish.

    This is a very good wine. It benefits from a complex array of black fruits and secondary oak derived notes, with only hints of tertiary development coming through. (I found this far less developed than its' "Beauty" sibling). The alcohol is a large issue for me, with a distinctive spirity note on both the nose and (stingingly) on the palate. Whilst further aging will no doubt bring further complexity, I can't see how the alcohol will ever fall into balance.

    Cork.
