    July 6, 2017 - Notably cloudy light garnet colour. Nose is funky (VA), with stewed strawberries, cherries, and forest floor. Bold and rustic in style.

    November 18, 2016 - Croquet hit the nail on the head. This was very cloudy out of the bottle, not what you'd expect for only a 4 y/o. Others mention forest floor and this is the most endearing thing for me. The nose is the best thing about it at the moment. Flip of a coin on whether there is any upside from here

    October 1, 2015 - Took this to an Auswine forum offline.

    Slightly cloudy in appearance with a brown tinge. It certainly looks older than it is.
    Slight sour cherry with some earthy smoke on the nose

    Earthy, autumnal notes and could pass for a burgundy.

    Seemed much older than it was - hard to gauge how this will develop but drinking really well now.

    January 8, 2015 - very complex, both fruit and very savoury forest notes. At 3 years of age, it shows an incredible length with some initial black cherry and then a long tail of forest floor, mushrooms, and other savoury notes. Brilliant.

    November 19, 2014 - Nose of root beer, ginger ale, cherry, and dry leaves. Palate is acid-dominant and oxidised, with flavours of red cherry and browned beef.
