Surprised to find Brett in this bottle, some redeeming plush fruit but overall muted with metallic finish

Beautiful and pure dark fruit, blackberry and plum, complimented by violet, leather, clove, and black pepper. Grippy but softened with air, vibrant and fresh.

Initially fairly closed. By the last glass this has opened - beautiful floral nose, red cherry and iodine, lithe 👌

Lightly spicy and peppery blue fruits with excellent balance and a great finish. Detailed, nuance and delicious in an only 13% abv package.

Tighter than prior bottle and had same length of decant. Blackberries, moss, coffee beans, herbs, and pepper. Good stuff but stuffing to wait to drink the rest.

Young and delicious. Happy I opened. Thankful. Life is too short to drink bad wine or to wait for good wine that is great today. Be thankful and love your cellar for the enjoyment it gives now, not in 20 years.

Great bottle from Rhys, very dense and concentrated, deep dark robe, spices and black fruit. Polished and velvety tannins in a long finish. Hold another two years or decant 1 hour before drinking. The best Shiraz I know in the US !
