Shockingly deep purple color. Still youthful aromas of plum, oak, mint, vanilla, high-toned spice, and some "redwood". Thick and rich with excellent length and lush acidity. Scads of layered and intense fruit cascade across the palate. Simply gorgeous despite it not being quite mature yet. 87% Shiraz and 13% Cabernet that was raised for 20 months in new American oak hogsheads. Grapes were sourced from Kalimna in the Barossa, Modbury in Adelaide, the McLaren Vale, and Clare Valley.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
