    June 9, 2012 - Pepper, warm spice, smooth easy drinking Shiraz. Great drinking and good with Pizza.

    December 3, 2011 - ...or 87. Interesting wine with respect to label and marketing..."Love Grass"...Nothing outstanding as others have described. Maybe needs 1-2 yrs to mellow- but otherwise has light fruit on nose and palate is acidic, "big" i guess, some tasty berry fruit and some light oak in the medium length finish. Borderline QPR. If you try, I would say stick on shelf for 1 year.

    October 16, 2011 - Drank two bottles of this in Hong Kong

    It is a nice Shiraz but nothing special. It has some lovely fruit notes and flavours but it is slightly a bit too jammy.

    June 4, 2011 - Good colour, white pepper and ripe fruit; juicy and silky, ripe acidity, very little tannin, decent length. Aromatic, versatile. Ça va.
