    January 22, 2019 - Deep red, no sign of age. Nose of black fruit, anise, mushrooms, cedar. Lots of fruit in the mouth. A bit sweet. Nice long finish. Good for its type and should last a while but no longer to my taste. Got distracted by those high Parker scores back in the day.

    December 5, 2014 - Amazingly youthful for a 15 year-old Aussie shiraz! Still garnet, with slight brown at the edges, still almost completely opaque. Very pronounced complex aroma of blackberries, black cherries, smoky oak, slight herbal notes. Very rich and full on the palate, some licorice along with dark fruits; perfectly balanced, a medium-full-bodied wine without significant tannin. The aftertaste is very long, with black fruits and licorice building on the finish, slightly hot. This is an outstanding wine which has aged beautifully. It has not gone beyond its plateau but is fully mature and should be consumed soon.

    November 14, 2014 - Just a very lovely mature shiraz. Dark rich fruit with a pleasing herbacious note on the midpalate (sage) and a long finish. Popped and pours and was really best after the first hour.

    January 3, 2014 - Dark - very dark ruby. Expressive nose of to torefaction, licorice, blackberry with some leather, clearly Barossa and not Rhone. On the palate dense, warm and fruity without being oxidative. This is a big wine but not over the top which Roennfelt Road of he same house often is. Nevertheless, my guests drank this next to a Chave Hermitage and preferred the later for its greater aromatic complexity and freshness. But if you like OZ Shiraz, Grenoock Creek has been one of my favorite producers for a long time.
