Solid flavors of plum and cherry. An excellent pepper spice on the finish that lingers long afterward. Tannins are balanced and there are quality oak characteristics accompanied with a mild vanilla flavor. Fruit flavors are a little understated outside of the plum, but the spice is the defining characteristic.

Excellent Shiraz. Several cab drinkers were very impressed. Big fruit flavors that were nicely smoothed out for s wine only 3years old. Want this one again soon.

Inviting nose of dark berries with a touch of oak in this 2015. Intense flavors of blackberry and plum and spice with ripe, enjoyable tannins.

Let it air! Red fruit flavor, medium body, sharp tannins that mellow with air.

Nose of struck flint. Even the waft of 12 gauge fire while duck hunting in wine country. Pepper and black fruit turns to chocolate and chalk in the mouth.

Been ill for awhile but I'm back in the game. Don't drink a lot of wine from the Aussies, but I wanted to try this wine. Full of black fruit and spices on the nose with licorice on the tongue. Not great but good for the price.
