    December 24, 2019 - Superb wine with some now noticeable age and tertiary characters. Drink over next 2-3 years.

    July 3, 2017 - Perfect bottle and best yet. Still youthful and lively but carrying the 10 years age with integrated fruit, oak and super fine tannin. Just a very enjoyable wine. Exceptional now but should still have some time to continue developing.

    September 2, 2015 - Juicy blackberry and black currant flavours, but not jammy. There's also a hint of dark olives and a bit of spice. Medium finish and medium body. Very enjoyable.

    August 29, 2015 - In a great spot now. Has an elegance that many McLaren Vale reds lack. Paired very nicely with a steak but lovely to sit and contemplate without food too.

    November 16, 2013 - Probably suffered a bit in being served after the 2 preceding Marius wines. That's not to say it isn't a great wine - it certainly is. But tonight it's just not quite as good as the Symphony or the EndPlay. Dark fruits, chocolate and even a little aniseed mesh well with the oak. Probably would have benifitted from a few hours in the decanter to help it unwind a little. Getting towards being full bodied I found this more of a bruiser than the Symphony.
