Incredible weight with a velvety tannin mouthfeel. Slam dunk especially at this price point.

Blueberry rhubarb pie scents with hints of purple flowers. Low tannin, savory, an explosive finish. Very well structured and in check. Delicious non over the top Aussie Shiraz.

Dark and viscous in the glass. Smells like wood chips, charcoal, berry cobbler, and rubber in the sun. Not in necessarily in that order though. It’s fruit forward and soft around the edges. Certainly in the ‘Shiraz’ style over ‘Syrah’. Easy to drink. Smooth and luscious. It’s a passable Aussie red, but nothing strikes me as wow here.
