Sulphur and hot rubber blew off immediately. Candy shop, cola candy, raspberry coulis, warm cherry pie, red pepper, paprika, salted plum, baking spices. Garnet color, long finish. At Bouchon Santa Barbara, paired with a boss rack of lamb. Best wine of the year, to the point of hedonic euphoria.

Third of the Australian Shiraz. Seemed disjointed. What a shame....

Dark dark ruby red. Non sweetened maraschino cherries, acetone and chalky undertone. Nose was overpowering and disappointing. Layered palate with dark cherries, dark cocoa and some cherry liquor. Moderate tannins with a medium body and long finish. Nose just killed this. if we had to rate this. 86.

Once again, just wonderful. BlackBerry, Cherry, Cola, juicy plumbs and it developed a hint of vanilla.

Nearly a perfect Shiraz. Refined and now delicate after 15 years.

Fantastic juice. Could use some extra years to develop some notes of evolution.

Ripe raisiny aromas. Could not be from anywhere but the Barossa. Satisfying full palate. Good intensity but really over valued for a $200+ price tag from a good vintage. 17.
