Really nice Aussie Shiraz. Far from the typical South Australian Shiraz one tastes a lot. This is deep, dark, but impeccably balanced and elegant at the same time. Has a certain flavor profile that reminds me just a little of older vintages of Penfold’s Grange or Jasper Hill Georgia’s Paddock. Great fruit, structure, and sense of place. My favorite producer of Australian wine and almost an old-school feel to the wine. As usual, great stuff. As good as this is, the 2002 is even better.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
