    May 13, 2015 - Excellent wine.
    Deep red colour with dry dark berry fruit on the nose with some barnyardy earthy characters.
    Tar and bitumen on the palate with hints of cigar box.
    Long finish with some tannins still there and all in good balance.

    November 21, 2011 - Fruity, but with a small taste of leather on the palate. Nicely aged, but still jammy, to a moderate degree. Worth the money (under $25). Excellent (87.5).

    November 14, 2009 - Syrah/Shiraz tasting @ my place (Netherlands): Middle deep, some browning in the edge. Opening up with blueberries and blackberries, but also rosehip and pomegranate. The presence of neatly toasted oak is well tuned and balanced. Clearly recognisable as a Syrah, in the classic style of a cooler climate. Wonderful, rich and long this wine has magnificent focus and fine, fresh and lively acidity. A pinch of heat on the finish, though. Lovely stuff. Rhone? 18/20

    February 3, 2007 - One year on from the last time I tasted this, I am very impressed indeed. For its relative youth, it's the best Australian red I have drunk since the III Associates Squid Ink a couple of years ago. Super colour and depth. Restrained but rich and welcoming nose of saddle leather and caramel. On the palate this is outstandingly balanced and harmonious with loads of sweet concentrated fruit counterpoised by just the right amount of new oak and without the usual over-predominance of acid I find in most Australian reds. Definitely enough structure to improve for the next 5 years, not sure about beyond that. Good length. Really very good indeed. Made from near-century-old vines from a single vineyard. Runny and I have an odyssey called "The Next Grange" to identify the very best of the relatively new top Australians and this definitely makes the cut.
