1/19/2008 I rate this 90 points: Enjoyed this wine, we did a comparison between 3 Australia Shiraz and agreed that this was the best of the three. (the other two were MAK and Green Point) Serving Temp was 61 - Dark Red with Purple overtones, pronounced legs, medium aroma of blackberry and plum with some Oak. Wonderful fresh black fruit flavors, with some cinnamon, spice and black pepper. Long finish with oak, vanilla and earth flavors. Very Balanced with moderate complexity, strong structure, but has smooth tannins. Aged 12 months in French Oak. This wine has 14% alcohol, however I saw other references of 14.5 and 14.7, but our bottle said 14%. Have one more bottle and will buy some more. Listed as "smart buy" with WS. . . Cheers!
