This rating is based on the wine 'right now' (November 2012), not what it might become with a little more time.

This is a big, rich, concentrated, somewhat typical Australian wine. But it does have some excellent complexity, and some balancing freshness. I still think it's a little over extracted for the amount of freshness it delivers.

My main issue right now is that it's a little too oaky right off the bat. After a few hours in the decanter (or the next day from the bottle) it's better, so if you've got some, I'd say to hold them at least a few more years (I did not detect any acetone).
