In a double blind flight of Aussie Shiraz. No surprise that this was near the top. Our group called Oz Shiraz immediately on the flight. This was fresh and youthful, though fully mature.

Very nice dark berry fruit, hints of dark cherry. Some meaty savory notes with violets, spices, and nice acid tannins fully integrated and a nice plush lengthy finish. Was better on night 2.

Holy F!! This was just firing on every single cylinder. Bright red and black fruits that are so ripe and delicious. Balsamic reduction, bacon, tar, iron, earthy goodness and a silky baby bottom smooth finish. A real wow wine. Co WOTN for me. Crickey!! @Michael Meyer this was a treat.

A very pretty wine for such a bushwhacker by reputation. Red currant, cherry, white pepper, mint and chocolate. How’s that for a laundry list? 2002.

At first the nose is cedary and earthy and pencil lead. Then it quickly opens up to display an array of blueberry, black currant and sweet plum. Amazingly alive for a wine of this age and can still go another 10 years. Alluring, long finish of leather, sweet spice and smoky oak. Thank you Tim Matz for the taste!

The nose is a little too open. Blue fruit, almost Bordeaux-like but with an American oak note. Nice balance- nice acidity

Gorgeous deep nose dark plum and cherry with a whiff of violets, a bloody undertow, and a hint of vanilla. Very balanced, soft and complete in the palate. Long and supple. Delicious and very long.
