    January 6, 2022 - Deep brooding color, fruit nose (how does one explain its youthful taste), great with pasta. Buy/drink/hold

    June 5, 2021 - This has softened considerably since its release. It's still very dark and opaque, with powerful shiraz aromas and very full flavors. The balance is excellent and there now is some complexity and even a bit of elegance. Perfect now, but should easily hold another five years.

    August 14, 2020 - Decanted and drank over 1hr. Lovely rich nose and palate .. with some port character albeit with the 16% alcohol very balanced. I think you could easily keep for another 3-4 yrs but drinking beautifully now.

    August 6, 2020 - Opened last bottle and wow has this wine changed over time...for the better. Still full bodied with blue and blackberry fruit but now with many secondary flavors like cassis, lavender and violet on the finish. Super smooth, bright and fresh...amazing after 14 years in the bottle for a Mollydooker COL.
