    April 20, 2019 - Not much varietal flavor here and light in style for a Syrah. Faded below 90 after 90 minutes, so we went to another wine after drinking half. Can't say it's a bad wine, just pretty much of a disappointment. I can't imagine why I tried NZ for a red, they own the SB grape and are pretenders with everything else.

    March 18, 2019 - Drinkable but dead. Failed cork?

    November 25, 2018 - Gave it some air. Mid weight. Delicate red/raspberry and blue fruits. Thought those down-under drank manly full-bodied juice. Not the case for this wine. Subtle but complex. Short finish.

    July 22, 2017 - Solid syrah. Let breathe for about 60-90 minutes. Fairly dense. Nose average. Medium to full bodied red and blue fruit. Pleasant but not overly complex. Decent finish.

    July 18, 2017 - Memory: creamy raspberry & red cherry, smoke, spicy meat.
    Red cherry through to Blackberry and dark plum skins. Superbly subtle oak, peppery finish. New Zealand's answer to Cote Rotie. I suspect this might develop its savoury side during the next 5 to 10 years plus. Very good drop.
    91/92
