A really nice wine drinking beautifully. This is my last. I would not be afraid to hold off on any other bottles I had but I don't think this wine will get any better than it is now. Drink up!

Drinking quite well, but not going anywhere for a while. Tasted more like a napa cab than a WA cab - lots of red notes, very few green ones, and hints of vanilla and carmel

Drinking incredibly well. Not a typical aussie shiraz. Some nice secondary notes, middle weight and nice finish. Great QPR

No formal notes, but fantastic with simple grilled chicken and roast sweet potato. Great QPR. This is one of those I am really happy I let lie down for 3 years

I agree with other reviewers, both on the many positive attributes (the spice, finish, complexity) as well as the less desirable (the oak like sour taste at the very end of the finish), but overall an outstanding wine. This is my last one. On to 2006!

Really good, but no wow factor. I liked the balance better after a few hours, so am hoping the 2 I have left will be more rewarding with a few more years on them.

1991 Tahbilk Cabernet Sauvignon

Popped and poured and was not disappointed. The nose is muted, and a bit musty, but in a good way. Amazing how bright the cherry notes are. Screams much younger. No bit, just a nice medium finish. A fantastic food wine (more so than a solo sipper). Amazing price point for 20 yr old Cab

What a difference 3 years makes. The green notes are strong, the finish is smooth and if you like cab franc, you will not be disappointed. What surprised me most was how vibrant the wine tastes and how much bouquet is left on the nose. No reason not to drink away if you have them.

Double decanted and then brought to dinner. Fist sip was amazingly fresh with very vibrant, but light berry notes. The dust is also there, but not overpowering or distracting. A fantastic wine. Will save my remaining bottles for another year as this wine will be around a while

I wish I had waited longer. This just kept getting better in the bottle over the course of an hour. 2 of us, we could not resist and quaffed it up. Maybe the QPR of the decade. Firm cherry notes, with lots of smoke, earth and other secondary notes floating around. The balance on this is just amazing. Tannins are still there, but softened to the right level. Just took the last sip and I swear that the cherry flavor was like candy. Well done.
