"A 50/50 split on the grapes, and 1919 and 1920 plantings. Pleasing symmetry.


Good wine this, and while I prefer the synergy of Cabernet and Malbec, Shiraz can fill the dance card competently. Has something of a bloody character, along with rose and dried flowers. Blackberry, a saline character here, certainly the steak and spice, camphor comes through too, and a bit of coffee and earth. Supple but dry tannin. Richness, depth, and a certain oomph. Rugged rather than suave, but a very good wine it is. More to come."
