    April 5, 2019 - Wow this has held up well. So smooth and sweet upon opening. Reminds me of Velvet Glove (had to do a double take on the bottle). Excellent offering right now. So good.

    July 16, 2016 - [Courtesy of G&L SIM] Very dark color, purple edge. Blackberry blackcurrant bouquet with hints of earth, mineral, cassis, kirsch, licorice, black cherry compote, pepper & fully absorbed oak notes. Full, intense, deep, ample, concentrated, lush, sweet, multilayered black fruit flavors, superbly endowed & seamlessly integrated with plenty of ripe smooth tannins, silky extracts & fine acidity; wonderful harmony, outstanding mouthfeel. Long opulent & satisfying finish. A well-kept bottle at its peak.

    May 16, 2015 - Very good medium-full bodied Shiraz. Very fruity / fruit forward, but not jammy, like many unbalanced Australian Shiraz.
