2011 vintage - current release - everything there but remarkably upfront & drinkable - hard to know what age will add!

Wow just opened this already can tell it’s fantastic. Inky color with aromas of stewed plums and spices of pepper and hint of cinnamon.

Vanilla and sweet spices were a little too prominent for me. Coffee and milk chocolate, black fruits, prunes. All very dark and broody and this is meant to be from a cold wet vintage. Started to brighten up a little after an hour or so which gave me hope. I will have to decant the next bottle.

A nice follow up to BK Single Barrel Chardonnay. 2011 vintage with softer fruit, savory mid palate and chalky tannins. I know what I am going to do with the other 5 bottles. #Rockford #basketpress #sawine @rockford @barossa

Definitely a classic. Amazing ballsy Shiraz, paired well with our wagyu eye fillet. Needs a couple more years in the bottle.
