After the Verset, yeah. Before the Verset I was comparing the Aussies to each other with great interest and nothing about the non-Aussies threw me off. But the Verset rebooted my palate and brain and the Aussie shirazes got less interesting. I then went to the Aussie cabs and I was pleased. but around that time my palate was fried.
I'm looking forward to trying the leftovers tonight to form a final opinion and a goodbye to the Parker Aussies. I found I still have plenty in my cellar which surprised me.
I think the Verset might be one of the best wines I've ever had. It was the perfect time to drink it.
