($85; 100% shiraz Bright medium ruby. Dark raspberry, plum, fruitcake, tar and molasses on the nose. Juicy, tightly wound and very firmly built; the dark berry and fruitcake fla vors began a bit ungiving but showed increasing sweetness in the glass. Finishes firm and quite fresh, with impressive nutty persistence.

at a great spot now.. still plenty of primary fruit but has developed an abundant of secondary flavors.. will likely improve another 3-5 years and stay there for 10years or so...

Not what is was two years ago but still delicious - fruit is diminished and not as prominent but fine tannins remain but less harmonious - past peak but still a year or two of good drinking

Amazing, with blackberry, blueberry, expresso and a kind of roasted background. Well structured. A splendid shriaz from Barossa valley.

We popped this one to celebrate my 6 months off of chemo and clean blood work. This is just an extraordinary wine. The nose is a powerful blast of dark plums, blackberries, and black cherries. A wisp of smoke comes through in the end. The body is perfectly balanced. A rich combination of cassis, blackberries, blueberries, and sweet tannins make for one of the smoothest wines I've tasted. The finish is long (roughly 45+ seconds) with a beautiful layered effect. We felt so lucky to be celebrating such good news with such an incredible bottle of wine.
