    November 6, 2018 - Still holds good body and spice at this age. Dark red in color with black fruit and hint of minerals. Drinking well now but still has some years to go.

    March 16, 2018 - Alcohol and oak. At this point drink up or dump.

    After about an hour the strong alcohol and oak blew off. Flavor increased a lot. Real nice after that .

    December 10, 2017 - As per Barry G TN. There is life left in this yet, unfortunately it was never in the best of health due to the excessive booze level. A decent wine lies underneath but only shows itself on occasion.

    September 24, 2017 - This would have probably been a great wine three years ago but unfortunately it is now past its best. Nose is unbalanced and the wine has a fine sediment throughout. Sparks of a good wine persist, it is smooth with good length and a lingering caramel aftertaste but not enough to offset the unpleasant nose and ashtray palate.

    January 17, 2017 - Too much heat after opening. Tasted like a shot of whiskey. Mellowed after about 30 minutes, could taste tannins and some fruit. Will see how it tastes on day 2, but I think this bottle is past its prime.

    Second day was better, but way too much alcohol and not enough fruits and tannins.

    (PARSONS FLAT SHIRAZ/ CABERNET SAUVIGNON) #2; COLOR-very dark; NOSE-very opulent & extracted; blackberry jam mixed w/ raspberry compote; TASTE-strawberry syrup from IHOP; extracted; dry; good firm tannins; very rich; creamy; pancakes (no butter) w/ cream cheese & strawberry syrup; explosive rich fruit bomb; a little too much for me, but many of you would like; not obnoxious, a lot of structure & class; RP-93; GV-90
