    April 5, 2019 - 100% Shiraz. 15.5% ABV. 18 months in French oak hogsheads (40% new). I let it breathe for 45 minutes. Fleshy, spicy, leathery nose. Like a CA pinot noir. Plum and berry notes. Good acidity for the juicy fruit.

    March 2, 2019 - 16.0% abv. Dark crimson red purple. Big viscous wine in glass, as expected with high alc. black cherries, eucalyptus, sage. Med+ mouthfeel. Lush on palate, no real tannins evident, some acidity but waning. More berries, cola, confection on finish. This one at peak imo, drinking well, drink up.

    January 26, 2019 - Deep reddish-purple and aromatic nose of dark fruit, blood, and a bit of smoke. Classic high-end Aussie Shiraz with loads of fruit, but not over the top. The 15.5% ABV is evident but not obvious, and it has a little kick of spice on the long finish. Drinking well now, but should easily age for a few more years as well.
