    July 23, 2016 - Delicious. So smooth on the palate with dark berry fruit, dark chocolate and loads of character. A gorgeous wine.

    January 27, 2014 - Got heaps of development still to go but wanted to see what it was looking like. Very fruit forward with raspberry, blackberry, plum, white pepper, subtle strawberry notes, with fuschia flowers coming through as it opened up in the glass. Good and strong on the palate, ballsy, plenty of flavour. Will not look at the others for another 5-7 years at least

    September 26, 2012 - Just had to try this even though the drinking window is 2018-2040! Been sitting on 6 bottles for a year, so I've not done too badly. Opened and poured 2 glasses, first thing is the bright crimson colour, bright! Initially on the nose loads of sweet berry fruit, super sweet strawberries, first taste is 'fruit bomb'. Let sit for about 20 minutes and it did open up a little, some subtle tannins evident, and less offensive sweetness. Still half a bottle left and we'll see how it is after 24 hours. This is a screw top seal so it will be very interesting to see how it develops over the next few years.
