A bright, dark ruby red colour. Gorgeous nose. Mulberries, plums, black fruits. There is a hint of the Christmas pudd going on here. Some cassis also appears. The oak is handled superbly, almost transparent. Move to the palate and it is immediately obvious just how young this wine is. Spices and dark fruits dominate. There is plenty of grip, but the tannins are very fine and there is excellent length here. A finely balanced wine with an exciting future. Some chocolate emerged with time in the glass. From an excellent Margaret River vintage (is there any other kind?), this is a wine which should drink very well over the next ten to twenty years, but even in three to four years, it should score higher.

... 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.
