Blind tasted and had varying answers. Aged well. More lively than other Aussie friends.

Maybe too early to judge. Tight. Will revisit.

Tasted in 2011 and 2013. This is evolving into a beautiful wine. The oak is quite forward on the nose but the rich dark fruits shine through on the palate with pepper and anise on the finish. Drinking very well now but good for another 3 to 4 years.
