30+ minute decant in my new decanter :) Fully equipped now in London! Deep dark purple color, almost black. Massive power in this wine and could use some years to mellow out, even though it’s a 2003. These Aussie Shiraz’s rip your face off! Wine is very thick. Palate was surprising and interesting in that it was full of prunes, plums, and is very port like. You need to like big wines to enjoy this guy, which I do, but even this was too much.

Great wine. Rich, layered, big fruit yet balanced with age. Drank after meeting. David Powell.
