Bought a couple bottles of this over the holidays after trying at at the tasting booth. I enjoyed one with a roast beef dinner and the other is in the cellar. Nothing wrong with this per se but for the price I think you could do better. I found it to be fairly rough and lacking character. Fine with strongly flavored foods or cheese but I wonder if a couple more years in the cellar might help this come together a bit more. In the meantime try an Aussie Angus red it's about $7 cheaper and as good, if not better.
