    September 9, 2019 - Off taste, spoiled or just not drinkable, 2 out of 3 bottles not good, a real disappointment.

    November 30, 2018 - This bottle not so good, color was light, dull red color like cranberry juice, great bouquet, tart taste with no substance, no finish, could not drink more than a few sips as we let it try to open up, have 1 more bottle, drank with loin lamb chops.

    September 5, 2018 - Interesting wine. Nice acid with some bretty funk. That in combination with the low alcohol and abundance of stewed fruit made me think it could have been a young Northern rhone. Interested to try their Mourvedre...

    July 4, 2018 - Fascinating wine, earthy, fruit peeks through , slightly funky, enough acid to keep it lively, punch line is that it is 11.2% alcohol and it is a Syrah, Burgundy like in it subtlety , it mocks those big alcohol fruit bombs, this is what wine can be, drank with barbecue pork shoulder, will drink again, Australia is doing some near stuff, I need to explore it some more as it has been a while since I have tried much from down under.
