Unlike my bottle of the 2004 vintage, this bottle has no top crust of sediment.
It is, though, again a very dark ruby color, quite clear.
Smell of plum, blackberry, and black pepper, with floral notes. Restrained use of oak.
The next day the wine is largely unchanged.
Australia makes many nice wines, but they seem to have a special affinity for Syrah.
$15.99 seems an entirely reasonable price, I wouldn't hesitate to buy again.
