It’s been a minute since I’ve had an Amon-Ra and this bottle from @Joe Lucca brought back some fond memories. My tastes have strayed from most Aussie Syrah (some notable exceptions aside) but this is still in my wheelhouse. Rich, sweet black cherry, fruit cake, well integrated oak, iron. In a really nice place. Soft supple and warm. Here’s looking at you looking at me Amon-Ra.

A truck load of blackberries, baking spices and balsamic. The mouthfeel is luxurious, like wrapping you palate in velvet. A thick, massive wine and yet, it stops short of ponderous. Not really my style of wine but undeniably well made. Would be really good with grilled meat. Can drink now or years and years to come.

Still drinking great. No longer a beast. Very elegant and tasty.

At the Downs Club Magnum Christmas Dinner. Aromas of coffee grinds. Certainly considered as Barossa Valley Royalty with access to fruit from ancient vines. A powerful full bodied wine with glycerol and supple tannins. Extracted but not overly so. Very easy to like and to drink. A good future ahead particularly coming from Magnum.

Had this and the ‘10 and I love them both. Hedonistic Aussie Shiraz. Toffee, truffled chocolate, blueberry, blackberry, mint leaves. My favorite Aussie Shiraz.

Starts with a touch of burnt match and rubber, and onion that blew off after a few. Fruit on the nose is a huge dark berry, and very big and jammy in the mouth. #wine #amonra

Second red wine at Table #4 at Oakton Wine Shops Bucket List Tasting.

Deep and dark ruby red. Thick and dark nose with tobacco and black cherries. Silky yet heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Rich palate with tons of black fruits, anise, dark cocoa, earthy and gravel. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2030. (93+)
