If you love the decadent Barossa styles – the wines that are black as night and built for a Tomahawk steak – then this is the wine for you. It is a classic, modern take on the Barossa in that super-concentrated, luscious style. It is instantly explosive with bold and ripe blackberry essence, tar and chocolatey fruit supported by ample, spicy oak. It is then full-bodied, rich and jammy with chewy extracted tannins and excellent fruit concentration that drives a long and plush finish. It is not the most subtle wine but has serious impact and power that will make it a great drink over the medium term.

... And Brad and Angelina are not even owners of this brand any longer...
That was on the first list at Reserve back in 2013 and it was always a good seller.
I remember this one, couldn’t help but enjoy it
I feel your frustration and agree, it’s actually very good.
