Surprisingly round and generous, I found that the fruit stood out boldly against the structural elements. Drinking very well now.

Starting point, we think this needs some more time to integrate or drink soon, only time will tell. At the moment it is a little unbalanced. Medium ruby red. Layered nose with dark berries, dark cherries, boysenberries, nutmeg and a little brambles. Moderate plus acidity that is a little unbalanced. Moderate tannins (5.5/10) and medium bodied. Lots of red cherries, raspberries and minerality in the medium plus finish. Slight greenery too. Either needs another year in the bottle to see what happens or drink by 2018.

Floral aroma, sweet spicy taste. A bit young? Yes, but after one hour decanting, could enjoy concentrated CS taste with herb which is Australian, and with spicy from Shiraz and mellow from merlot. Good balance! @2800, Madoka, 180223

Licorice dark berry nose. Dark cacao tannins under earthy dried foresty leafy unripe cassis. Youthful tart fruit balanced with dense bitter cacao.

One of #atlasofwine's favorite producers. You may both intellectualize and quaff this classic McLaren Vale cabernet blend.

Full bodied and delicious. Drier so works better into the earlier evening.
