Yup, it's too extracted, too rich, too blunt, too jammy. And, man, it's a riot to drink. Maybe not on the reg but not everything can be hints of rose petals and essence of bergamot. It's a dark fruit monster, reduced blackberries and blueberries, cassis flying around, jammy gnarly Shiraz. Big style catering to certain tastes. Fine... Jah feel.

A mythical beast of a wine. Barely showing any signs of age; this 12 year old needs more time. Rose petals, toasty oak, and blackberry coulis on the nose. The palate is broad, and comes in waves. Black fruit, cassis, smoke, roasted beef fat, eucalyptus, bay leaf, baking spices, raspberry, blueberry jam. Teeth staining extraction. Mouth drying, textured tannins. This needs a dry aged prime ribeye. Finishes with some heat (15% abv) and green peppercorns. I haven't been to Oz in quite some time, but this sparks all the right sensory memories to remind me why it's a pleasurable place to be. Wish I had a case of this to work through over the next 2 decades.
