Smokey on the nose and all over, charred meat and blackberry compote, but all fully resolved. We quietly sucked down 2 bottles over dessert and cheese but hell if this wasn’t the best match for fleur-de-sel laced dark chocolate I ever had. Fully resolved, delicious and unlikely to get better.

Very solid. A smidge tart on the finish.

A new discovery for me. Wow. Subtle tannins. Elements of tootsie roll, cola, rhubarb.

Powerful nose of blueberry pie and barrel toast.
First thing that hits the palette are crunchy tannins. Then the linzer torte rush hits you, chased by all spice and cinnamon. It's all rather brash, but we are very much enjoying this old favorite. 14.5% abv is quite restrained for the Aussies.

A slightly worse showing than when I had this last. A bit too pruney for my liking.
