David Lawrason 85 points February 28 2016

This has a rather subdued earthy/tree bark/mossy Barossa nose. Some salt, pepper and beef jerky as well. It's quite full bodied, very dense, a bit more sweet than it needs to be. Rich but not much finesse here. Chocolaty sweetness pervades. Score drops on balance issues. Tasted January 2016. David Lawrason Wine Align Canada
