Bright, deep ruby. Spicy, lively aromas of cassis, bitter chocolate and mint. Supple, intensely flavored and nicely focused; sappy berry and spice flavors are nicely framed by harmonious acids. Dense and concentrated. Youthfully firm finish features fine tannins and very good length.

This wine is outstanding. Had many bottles when it was younger, and this is the oldest Australian shiraz I've ever had. Wish I had more...
Dark color and dark fruits with mild tannins. Not as thick as I recall but probably related to its age. I suspect this will keep several more years but why wait.

Deep, dark color without much sign of its decade + age. Beautifully structured wine. Not sure I would have picked the blend very well but the combination of ripe shiraz fruits (still going strong) and cabernet backbone made it wonderful. Fun wine
