A very good buy for current enjoyment. There is a lovely sense of polish and richness that borders on opulence but...

A great wine for the money. I shared the bottles with my friends last night and we all agreed that it had just the right balance.
Higly recommended

This is an awesome Shiraz for the money. It's rich and lush with an excellent finish. This wine is better than any Shiraz I've had < $40. Buy it now, it sold out quickly at my local LCBO.

Friend recommended this, so I searched high and low for it. Finally found 2 bottles at a lcbo, and it was definitely worth the money. i can see why it sold out so fast. VERY rich in flavor, a little tangy while sitting on the palate, with an excellent finish. definitely worth a try, and will get it again if i had the chance.

WOW!

This is an incredible wine. Halliday and Lawrason's ratings are accurate.

Medium-body with great fruit, not overly tanniny with enough to give a mild dryness to offset the fruit.

Really enjoyed this bottle, glad I bought a bunch to store and enjoy over the next 6-12 months.

Highly recommended.
