Chocolate, eucalyptus, and not over done. Still had a light touch and lively acidity.

Very enjoyable--not over done. Chocolate, blackberry, new leather, and a bit of Syrah burnt rubber or bacon fat. Would have judged this Rhone if not for high AbV. One of the best in this price range.

Cooler climate shiraz--smoke in da face...and peppercorn crusted smushed blueberries. Inky dark, powerful presence.

Solid basic Shiraz. Has a bit of alcohol on the finish. Not as good as I remember. And not worth the $15 price.

A legend from the Clare and very fetching in its new livery. Big & opulent but never losing its balance. One of the Barry boys best.

Warm spice and oak. Soft crumbly tannins, bright fresh fruit and a great complimenting acid. Very solid.

Not what I was expecting. Medium body, medium alcohol. Jammy blue and black fruit.

Wildflowers, violets and cassis. Soft with a nice mouthfeel.

Deep dark ruby, salami and dark red fruit, dry, thrusting peppery tannins, rich dark chocolate with chillies. Lean and long-legged.
