    June 16, 2019 - Yes it's powerful, yes it's high in alcohol, but it has a wonderful complexity and depth and went wonderfully with our vegetarian okra stew. I would recommend drinking it with any full-flavored food, because frankly, the food might just take second place behind the wine :-). We have a few more bottles in the cellar and I would say the drinking window should indeed go way beyond 2019.

    September 15, 2018 - 15+ minutes open in the bottle, but could use more and has some years left in it. Very similar to the Torbreck Shiraz “The Factor” I had a little bit ago. Almost black in color. Nose has big cedar and tar aromas. Wine probably has a little too much oak, but love the dark fruit and vegetable/earth undertones and it is very jammy. The 16% OH has to be a typo, because I’ve never seen a wine that high and it doesn’t seem that high. Insanely long finish. Massive power, but not quite on par with “The Factor”.

    July 3, 2018 - Dark Blueberry and Blackberry fruit. Vanilla and tobacco notes. Excellent!

    May 17, 2018 - A deep ruby purple wine with a large, enticing nose of sweet lavendar, licorice, vanilla, and cloves. The mouth feel is appealing without being overly soft or plush. Tastes of blackberries and vanilla, with hints of black olive in the mouth. A lengthy finish focused on blackberries and vanilla.
