Excellent fill level. Fading garnet color with bricking obvious. Nice bouquet and good fruit on palate - very robust and Syrah-like. Alcohol (14%) does not intrude. Fading but not disjointed. Dusty, drying tannins. Probably 5 years past peak but making old bones. No Shiraz sweetness. Some sludge sediment at bottom of bottle. Drink up! 89/100.
