15.4% alc., about 165 cases made.

I usually save my PS purchases with the intent to enjoy them 25+ years down the line.
This one will no doubt go the distance and although very good I do lack an extra layer in the wine to warrant long aging so my remaining bottles will probably meet the corkscrew over the next 5 years.

Stunning! The aromatics is just wow-ish, but it's even better on the palate. Loads of darkish fruit, brilliant acidity and overall balance. Mike Officer's best wine to date?

Wow! This is my favorite PS! Right from the pour, it is dark inky midnight black color. Massive black and blue fruits with spice. Lip smacking tannins. This will easily last two decades plus. Which is good since I have some of these for my daughters 21st birthday. Had to try one today for her 2nd birthday.

Ink like deep ruby color. Med tannins. Med acidity, long finish. Black fruit, cherry, tobacco. Still has lots of life

Purple color. Anise, black licorice, spice and red fruit on the very forward nose. Full and balanced body. Long finish. Youthful and exuberant but could age for a bit. Delicious now though.

Wow so good. Definitely needs a decant. I decanted for 1hr. Dark purple inky color.

Dark fruits and a floral rose petal on the nose. Big black and blue fruits with a touch of spice on the palate.
