    May 14, 2019 - Classic Shiraz. Big and peppery. Consumed over two days with little change. Recommend holding a few years to develop more tertiary flavors.

    February 17, 2019 - Brilliant example of a fine Australian Shiraz. Drinking well currently.

    November 18, 2017 - Decanted it 2 hours before tasting with nine friends. Lavender, mint, leather, violets. Very complex, floral and pleasant. Pretty smooth tannins. Still a bit young, but a really good mouthful. With his first sniff, one person got the eucalyptus and phenol aroma someone mentioned, but he didn’t get it again and never tasted it. One very unique Shiraz! I like it A LOT!

    October 15, 2017 - Vinturied and decanted, this is a young complex animal, primal at times, and seductive another..
    It changed multiple Xs over the evening,.
    Forget about for another few years to be justly rewarded. This is a 92++ to come.

    August 9, 2017 - Eucalyptus overtones right now. VERY young! Classic h. Drive though. Much bigger than previous incarnations but very complex. Opened up after 90 min with volatile parfum notes. Very phenolic @ the start. Artisan single vineyard summer red.
