    August 16, 2019 - Pop and pour, consumed over 3 hours. Nose: Medium expressiveness, eucalyptus, leather, black raspberry, black cherry, and herbs. Palate: Medium bodied, spicy dark red fruit attack, spice persists thru the mid-palate with gritty tannins and dark earth notes appearing in the back-end. Finish: Medium-plus length dominated by eucalyptus, ripe dark red fruit, and dark earth. This is drinking wonderfully at the moment, still fresh and vibrant, easily 3-5 years left here. My first Tasmania Cabernet, similar to the better Margaret River Cabernets I've tasted, good stuff!

    March 3, 2019 - Cellaraid Discovery Box; 5/19/2017-8/8/2019 (Delivered to Home): Deep dark ruby, and an explosive plum-driven nose, with some mint coolness later. Very fruity and fleshy, with lots of cassis laced with cool mint, and then some peppery herbs, liquorice, and graphite. Also rather burnish, but somehow the tannins seemed very resolved whilst still being in the midst of explosive black fruits. Pretty intriguing

    January 27, 2019 - Colour is losing its vibrancy and browning around the rim. Smells like tobacco, graphite, black currants, old leather and dried eucalyptus. Tannin is smooth and slightly powdery giving a soft but unmistakable grip. Great length. Acid maybe a little pokey but not enough to ruin the enjoyment. Tastes old world. Probably won’t gain much from further cellaring. But it’s beautiful now and I’d drink up over the next 5 years.

    March 26, 2018 - Very good bottle from Tasmania rather than the usual barossa / mclaren vale. juicy dark fruit and spiced chocolates

    November 17, 2017 - Color slightly bricked...nose is somewhat prune, cassis, spice....
    Flavor is leather fruit vegetal minerality...
    I sort of like it but don't love it......there is some flavor I can't define
    That is a bit off putting to me
