Slick power but no depth. Kind of like a really physical attractive person that has nothing to talk about or interesting to say.

Nice dark color. Nose of red & blue fruits and violets. Nicely ripened; blackberries, black plum, black raspberries, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, crushed stones, soft leather, underbrush, black cherry licorice, medium body and beautiful mellow acidity. Tasted like a warm vintage.

The epitome of what vintage variation can do for a wine. The structure is nothing but a balance of fruit and acid. I'd drink this before the '14. Much more food friendly, in my opinion.

Lovely wine. Had this on a picnic. Best enjoyed in real glasses however and with a nice bloody steak or Burger. Wonderful Australian fruit bomb.

4.1/5, 9.1/10.

Насыщенное, джемовое, комплексное. Сначала черника-ежевика, малина, гранат. Потом сублимированная клубника, копоть, свежий спил дерева, чуть табака.

Rich, jam-like, complex. Starts with bilberry, blackberry, raspberry and pomegranate. Later vacuum-dried strawberry, resin / pitch, sawn end, hints of tobacco.
