'Theres a lot going on here, and while the straight Shiraz from 2012 is a very good wine, I cant help but feel a little bit of something-you-fancy-Sir, in the mix can only be a good thing. Malbec its adding the top notes of roses, and also some of the base of deep plum. Shiraz is lending blackberry, and a little spice, then theres mint and camphor chests. Medium bodied, lovely depth to this wine and ripe perfumed fruit, though theres a twig and gum leaf character that normally Id find distracting, yet here it seems just part of a whole. Sticky ribs of tannin and some amaro herb bitterness drags the finish very long. No doubt this is a wine of distinction.'
