    April 9, 2021 - What a gem of a wine!
    Dark, brooding and massive without being dull, cloying nor hefty. Utterly balanced and great!

    I would wish for some more tannic backbone. As it is, I had emptied this btl almost before the start of the 2nd starter plate. Superbly delicious and easy drinking, a mere, unnoticeable 14,5%... Wow!

    Low acids, close to no tannins, yet balanced and fantastic!

    March 28, 2020 - Crazy wine. Massive and dense. Dark fruit, leather, but masses of soy sauce and umami. What is most impressive is the acidity: totally unexpected and keeps everything so fresh. Had the ‘02 Savitar last night: good, but this is another level.

    January 15, 2020 - A few years ago this was a huge wine with a truly extraordinary finish. Tannins are now very resolved, and it’s now a bottle to be enjoyed for subtlety rather than power.

    August 11, 2019 - A nice Aussie Shiraz very much at its peak. More subtlety than power.

    June 22, 2019 - The fruit is ripe and the tannins well integrated. Very balanced and harmonious for a wine this fruit-driven. Drinking beautifully right now, but I expect it will last 2-3 years before it starts to decline. Maybe longer.
