3.5 stars "Was a very full-bodied wine with nice dark garnet color. Even though I decanted it, it was very heavy in tannins and acidic. After some time in the glass, it opened up and was actually enjoyable. I believe that was my first Australian red and based on that Shiraz, it won't likely be the last."
