Street tacos and Disney films and a lovely drizzly evening...we enjoyed the 2015 version of this guy immensely so an easy decision to take it for another spin...plum licorice to the nose...plum spice licorice nectarines and believe it or not...mud...wet mud on the palate. Nice tannin and acid balance. Med finish. Lovely..just lovely...

As usually happens in life we sometimes have great surprises... this guy is a prime example of that..an increadable value coming out of the great down under. Dark plum acetone and spice to the nose. Slightly sweet plum dark fruit followed by licorice spice pepper to the palate. Nice mouthfeel but a bit watery on the back end. Velvety tannins and a med plus finish. A very enjoyable experience at an amazing value.

Typical Barossa with jammy black (currant) and blue fruit along with eucalyptus. Medium plus body with alcohol in balance. Finishes slightly short and tart.

A surprising delight, especially for such a young wine. The nose takes you all over the place; grape jelly, raisins, currants, blackberry jam lead the fruit parade. More subtle are the notes of black pepper, menthol, hard packed earth, bramble and a hint of oregano. Despite its somewhat sweet nose, the palette delivers a dry, bold experience. Think of a more complex warm climate Zin. Plum, blackberry, vanilla, burnt cedar, black and red licorice and shriveled black currant all put in appearances. As good as it is now I could see this being a wonder 5-10 years down the road. A robust bargain - $15ish - especially for estate grown fruit.

Nice initial flavors, light spice, but lacks depth

Very dark red, almost purple with black fruit aromas and peppery spice notes. The palate shows plum and blackberry flavors, some oak, gentle acidity and tannins a bit on the firm side. Enjoyable. Tasting Sample.
