    March 22, 2013 - Runny Returns.....the Great Australian Wine Dinner. (Chez Patrick Restaurant, 2/F, Garden East, 222 Queen's Road East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong): Decanted 6 hours before serving and drinking over another 2 hours. Light purple transparent-tinged rim but totally opaque purple-black at the core. Nose is hot days in Auatralia....dry eucalyptus leaves in the sun and other evergreen leaves... still very closed. Palate is closed and elusive.....very pure and enticing fruit but way too young. This has gone backwards since I last drank it in 2008 and was blown away by its potential. I'd leave the rest of my case for 3-8 years......it is in a very sullen, spotty adolescence at the moment. I think that Outlier's recent note nailed it.
