Disappointing, hyper-ripe, very grapey and mass-produced tasting. Nothing distinguishing that even let you know it had shiraz or cab in it.

I got a taste of this at the Chairman's fall preview tasting and was disappointed, it did not live up to my memory of the '04-'07. Was hoping that we just had an off bottle. So I picked one of these up last weekend and will open it soon, but based on your experience I'm not getting my hopes up.

Wharf, that may just be the style of this producer. I remember back in 04-07 the Big Aussie Shiraz was all the rage.

J2K, I've been having an Aussie Renaissance, and enjoy big and bold, especially when there's some meatiness to the Shiraz. Really enjoyed a clearance Shotfire Ridge and Tait the Ball Buster recently (latter acquired out of state). This just had none of that deliciousness. I've also had a few Henry's Drive offerings I really enjoyed, perhaps that added to my disappointment. Not sure if it's relevant, but Henry's Drive website makes no mention of this wine.

Oh snap, you’re making me thirsty. Wish i had one of those Two hands Bella’s Garden from back in the day!

I'm with Wharf. Grape jelly, no acidity. Aside from the label you'd never guess it had any relation to the previous vintages. A real disappointment. Poured it out.
