Aromas of loam, plums and light tarry nuances which translate onto the medium weight palate with M+ intensity. Tell tale garrigue notes of underbrush and thyme. Soft Liqueur cherries. I think after Burgundy my favourite World Wine regions would have to be both CDP and Cote Rotie. Celebrating an unexpected win for the Coalition in the Australian Election after all the Polls and the Bookmakers were tipping a Labour win. Scott Morrison will be our Prime Minister for the next 3 years and beyond I would think.

Ripe raspberry, dramatic spice, dynamic acidity somehow, herbaceous, forest floor, soothing tannin. A little robust and all over the place but quite complex also.

Very ripe, and a little raisined. But smooth as hell.

Syrah heavy nose followed by earth, baking spices and dark red fruit. Rich layered red fruit on palette. sublime texture and smooth tannins. Only complaint might be heat on back end.

A little hot on the nose and palate but still freaking delicious. Nose carries through with red fruit compote, licorice whips, leather, balsam, lavender, roasted herbs, moss, funk, and meat. Palate plays more on compote, licorice, and balsam with kicks of spice and leather. There's that savoriness coming through on the palate as well. Despite some alc. poking out this is really beginning to show well. Expecting more organic earth, black tea, and umami notes in the future but still a brilliant perfume right now. Tannin still has a little edge that keeps the wine balanced. Humbled to try wines like this when I can. 375 ml
