Wine was suggested by the magician himself @Ira Schwartz . We decanted the wine and it was needed. The wine developed well over the course of about 90 mins. At first it was a smooth mineral forward wine but developed some complex fruit flavors such a pear. It paired well with both the short rib lasagna and the sea bass my wife and I had that night. — 2 years ago
Still very good after 10 years. Élégance and length. — 5 years ago
Generally regarded as one of Australia's better Pinot Noirs on the basis of its perfumed nose and plummy medium bodied palate with lovely silky tannins. Could identify with @Ira Schwartz note recently of aromas of boot polish. I used to say varnish but I think we are on the same page. Great Pinot. — 6 years ago
My understanding is that this is a new wine from a partnership between Jim Schwartz and Heidi Barrett celebrating women in wine. It’s great and the QPR is outstanding. Go grab some before the price gets nutty.
2-3 hour decant in bottle. Medium body, cherry, light currant, a hint of chocolate, grippy/grainy tannins poke out a little past balanced (but I liked this), and clean finish. Great stuff! — a year ago

This goes out to @Ira Schwartz .
This is so full of life. Look at the presentation in the glass. Great nose of mulberries and saddle leather. Mid palate is juicy, powerful and still quite tannic. Some tertiary notes of sage are evident, but still a wonderful experience.
