Amazing wine. So complete and composed. Violets, bay leaf, plums, cassis, liquorice and perfectly judged oak nuance. Fruit feels perfectly ripe. A wall of tannin but nothing to resolute. Acidity well inter grated. Grand stuff

Young, little green, but altogether delicious and definitely potential to age longer. You could hardly taste the Cabernet component yet

Complexity, elegant, fruity, spicy, pungent and so much more. Still a long way to go. Out of the ordinary โœŒ๏ธ

Fruit, liquorice, balsamic, long with a great texture, but still so young that is embarrassing; I opened it 30 hours ago and it doesn't give more than youth. I have 3 more bottles, I guess I have to drink them with my sons๐Ÿ˜ฑwhen they will be old enough

In Rome we would say " Tanta Tanta roba๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚" There is a rainbow of scents and flavours running after each other, fresh, rocky, fruity, vibrant, tannic, irony... I just opened it, but I will never know what it will be like in 30 hours, this is going to finish soon๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Opened 30 hours ago!! Less shy finally, more than just nail polish Great density, fantastic texture and tannin. Beautiful opened up . Sensational !! Unforgettable freshness with flavours of eucalyptus , mint and liquorice. Barolo like somehow, funny similarity.

Still nice sour raspberry and ribes, with typical notes of eucalyptus invading every corner. Definitely pepper and other spices. Little choc.... I'd say white choc... European elegance and Australian palate.
Still haven't tried any better producer for my palate here
