(November 24, 2020) ... I've always liked the simplicity of the wines from Sister's Run, they deliver great flavors at an affordable price; they are aged under screwcap and I do believe a wine under screwcap ages quite well (and some times even better than cork) - this is the first time I have opened up an old bottle of Sister's Run and so this is a new experience for me. Starts off with lots of mocha, leather, licorice, blackberry, plum and even some vanilla-black cherry. The acidity comes across as fake, not exactly helping the wine along, but not exactly deterring from it either - plus there's some weak coffee and herbal notes to the finish. But the middle is lovely and concentrated and screams Barossa Valley, and that's truly all you really want from a bottle of wine that didn't cost you an arm and a leg seven or eight years ago.
