    October 21, 2016 - Holding its age well. Fading slightly but still very elegant/restrained but at the same time intense. Sign of a good wine after 25 years of bottle age.

    April 11, 2013 - Wow, what a graceful wine. Tasted double blind. I guessed cabernet sauvignon and since it lacked the classic Napa flavor profile I went overseas and guessed super Tuscan. The black currant is very bright for such an aged wine with a nice rounded finish of gentle soft tannins.

    April 10, 2013 - Aerated to decanter 5 hours, which proved just right. Enjoyed over the following 3 hours, this continued to open up right up to the last glass. On first opening, a dead ringer for 96 Ridge Monte Bello, but with each successive pour, it moved more into the 2nd growth left-bank realm. My WOTY so far. Elegance, polish, depth, purity. Simply brilliant stuff. Glad to have been able to share it with Hollowine and brigcampbell. 12,0% abv, drink thru 2018

    June 10, 2009 - Yarra Yering Dry Red No. 1 - The Complete Vertical 1975 to 2006 (The Ledbury, London): Ripe, oaky focused, classic YY with its intense cassis, but smooth and luxuriously textured, brilliant

    January 30, 2008 - Elegantly scented rich fruit cassis & blackberry nose. Silky & harmonious - just gorgeous
