2014, I know there style is not about finesse but I would expect more acidity coming from a cool year in McLaren Vale. Huge blue fruit and a hint of that black olive. It is not a shy wine

Hmmm., over the top, over the extracted and should be served cold. Think about it..,,,who wants to drink cool aid with sugar warm?? Doesn’t taste quite right!! Loll
I’m not sure if the juice is worth the squeeze but it does drink very well cold At the end of the night!!

For how big this is, it's actually pretty graceful 2014 vintage

Had this last night., I absolutely adore this producer it's a Penfold at a quarter of the price. Incredible, incredible Shiraz from Australia. Just globs of dark fruit with an incredible lush mouth feel. I'm a huge fan of this. Highly recommend it to everyone! $166 per bottle when you are a wine club member.
Believe me, you will never regret it

I need some ice cream for this, perfect slap to the face after a slew of old, elegant French and Napa wines. A testament to sunshine and concentration , well made and crafty and the rare steak and chimichurri saved it from being blowsy like Pam from Archer.

Great nose of mint chocolate, figs and cola. Even better on the palate, extremely ripe attack, chewy and rich, dry and slightly bitter finish reminiscent of cocoa powder.
