My first #grange and unfortunately it did not make me fantasize about tasting more. The structure was faded and the fruit was right behind it. No lift or excitement. #penfolds #southaustralia #australia #syrah #shiraz #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

A touch disjointed with the alcohol sticking out like a sore thumb. Definitely flavorful. #twohands #barossavalley #shiraz #syrah #bigboy #australia #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

The first time I tasted this wine 6 weeks ago was at a large tasting and it had been double decanted. The second time tasting the wine was straight from bottle over three hours. The two were completely different. Straight from bottle was more of a classic #australian #shiraz , big, bold, chewy, and lacked balance. Whereas the double decanted bottle was more in the realm of #coterotie

Absolutely delicious! The fruit was bold and dense and there were some wonderful secondary notes. The wine had great balance and fantastic length. #darenberg #syrah #viognier #mclarenvale #australia #greatvalue #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

This coats every inch of your mouth with massive amounts of fruit, chocolate, alcohol, and tannin. This is a huge #fruitbomb but in a serious way. Not my cup of tea, especially without a cowboy ribeye to enjoy with it. #torbeck #barossavalley #shiraz #syrah #australia #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago
