Dry, lean and rustic dark fruits, plum skins, blueberry, painted over taunt tannins. In the glass, pie sporting a crimson bowl. Loads of under brush and wild licorice. It's so good to a Shiraz showing some restraint, nicely done!

Tons of menthol on the initial aromas, great red fruits, and cigar box flavors. Yummy, but typical Aussie.

We should have waited a few years to drink this one, but we enjoyed it anyway!

Pretty darn good. Follow instructions on back of bottle to decant shortly before opening. 15 min of air made a big difference!
