    November 3, 2018 - Our last bottle of six and almost a decade since I wrote a TN on this wine. Time has been very very kind to this wine - now well balanced, much softer and completely mature / in a great drinking window with probably another at least 2-3 years+ left at this level with proper cellaring. Probably no further upside to further cellaring and definitely recommend starting to drink up any remaining holdings. We loved this last night, highly recommend it and at our original acquisition price of at around $40 / bottle this is now a great QPR wine - thought about bumping up the score another point. Good mouth feel, one of the softest Aussies we've had, smooth, much less jammy and intense then in it's youth, very well balanced with remaining tannins now well integrated and fading. This last bottle was popped & poured at a restaurant, would recommend a short 30-60 min decant. Dark purple to black color with some peripheral bricking. Nose aromatic and dark with balanced dark fruit, eucalyptus and more smoke then the tar I remember from previous bottles. Primary flavors include dark stone fruit, black currant and rasoberry up front with darker tones of licorice, tar, terroir and black pepper on the mid-late palate. Very long pleasant lingering aftertaste.

    June 18, 2018 - Passed its prime. Stewed fruit and harsh. Enjoyed previously, but hung on this bottle too long.

    June 24, 2017 - NJROSENUT has it put it nicely. A hint of that tangy Shiraz nose ( used to call is sweaty saddles), deep rich colour ( inky is right), amazing legs and it all comes together wonderfully on palate. Great fruit, balance, reasonable complexity and surprisingly light on given the alcohol ( too much which is a shame). Acidity is very good ie it is in balance without cutting through your enamel. Long.

    (Two Hands Lily's Garden McLaren Vale Shiraz) COLOR-dark; NOSE-no notes; PALATE-this is 15.7% and the alcohol is so well controlled; nice initial attack and then great intense raw fruit on the mid-palate; then finishes very dry; a very big wine; GV-No Score
