Aaron: I’ve always liked my good friend Myra because she’s really awesome – I liked her even more after she gave us this great bottle as an engagement present!  A mocha vinegar smell reminded me of coco beans still on the tree with some bark.  The rich, thick flavor features some heavy tannins but the chocolate cream with a little spice made for a very pleasant flavor.  I noticed some mildly tart raspberry on the finish and would only recommend this to people pairing it with a big meal.  90 points

Teri: Talk about a full bodied wine – BAM! A cloud of flavor upfront then your taste buds slowly make out other distinct flavors from there. My progression was coco –> spice –> raspberry –> then vanilla and oak which sits with the tannins and lingers for miles in your mouth. Australia always does a few things well: espresso, meat pies, and Shiraz. 90 points
