    July 18, 2020 - I love a big Shiraz and while this was a great wine, it was not the on your face burst of power of most. The nose was outstanding and the wine was much more textured and like a cab. Chocolate covered berry WS very pleasing; the only negative was a bit of heat on the finish. It was my last bottle, but probably at or past peak now.

    December 31, 2017 - BEAUTIFUL wine! Dark purple colored and SO aromatic. Coffee, chocolate and dark berries. Drinking perfectly right now.

    July 13, 2016 - Outstanding. Was the favorite at a tasting going up against very high end Syrahs from France and Australia. Very big bold fruit, nicely integrated oak, harmonious while rich. Wish I had more; this tastes like it can go a long time

    March 27, 2016 - Wow. Really nice. Dense, Dark in color. Great nose; cab like; anise, bright fruit. Nice texture and mouth feel. Lots of life left.

    September 1, 2014 - 15.7% ABV,

    This bottle is tight with harsh tannins and excessive oak. I really regret opening it. I think it will be perfect in 2016. This wine would benefit from a 2 hour decant.

    96 points from WS is a huge score and I don’t know if this bottle will ever deliver that. Seems like Linne Calodo and Saxum deserve better scores if this is the comparison point.
