    April 2, 2019 - Solid color and flavor especially with Turkey bolognase and cauliflower where I believe a Shiraz holds up.

    May 26, 2018 - too much alcohol for me. good structure otherwise. better off drinking these earlier.

    November 9, 2014 - Still purple at the rim, but not the typical dark as night opaque Aussie shiraz. Nose of smoke and cloves and herbs. Tasted soft and silky, with fruits of blackberries and flowers--the viognier probably had something to do with this. Killed the Mouton 79 after it.
