Smelled like a Northern Rhône...meat, dark fruit, flowers. Fun wine.

Ample and generous dark fruit, some animal notes (not Brett), spices and eucalipt. Good body and length

Pretty good Syrah. A bit harsh, but mellowing out with time. Torbreck has a good reputation, so there are more wines to be tried.

Wow! Punches way over $20! Bold Northern Rhône notes of smoked meats, creosote, tar, strawberry rhubarb pie, and some blackberry liqueur. Is Run Rig used in this?

Meaty nose upon opening quickly turns into classic Barossa chocolate-y spice, black fruit and lush tannin. A generous wine

Reviewed this back home. Saw it at Costco for under $16. $25 Australian at this winery. Such a steal at Costco. Might be the 14 at Costco and not the 15. It got bright blue fruits and mixed berries with just a bit more warmth and spice than "The Steading".

Not my style, but brought it to a blind to show what Barossa Shiraz is. Perfect example.

Full of fruits flavors; plums and tobacco. Great with prime steak!

Very dark violet, spicy aroma, spicy balanced with fruity flavor. Chocolate like, blueberry, calm. @1150, Eva, 180421 - 180428
