I am changing my mind on this wine; I’ve been opening different vintages for a customer and I am experiencing amazing taste buds feelings🤙🏻
But the real plus of this iconic Shiraz is the persistence, it never vanishes, never fades away. It stays with you.
Real good🙏

Purchased at the winery, tasted exactly the same all these years later (was great then), just even more complete and layered, proof that age-worthiness starts with balance and ends with balance. Wonderful when a winemaker you respect is proven right about the virtues of classic wine.

Mature but not tertiary-- superb definition of flavors with excellent length. Agree with prior comments about an iron-y spine. Fantastic right now.

Quite developed for a Basket Press. Smooth, slightly volatile meaty goodness. Oh, and it had that Hermitage iron edge to it as well. Drink now.
