Good flavor. Nice, strong finish. Still required a fair amount of time to open up. Defeinitely benefitted from decanting.

A stunning wine. Decant for an hour. Beautiful nose, almost Bordeaux like, great mouth feel and long finish. Mature but years left. Best wine in Australia

Refined blueberry pie with hints of pepper, leather and tobacco. Delicious! Glad we brought it back from Australia and celebrated our daugher's birth with this very special wine!
