Community Tasting Notes 3

    May 10, 2013 - Gorgeous layered dark fruits with hints of eculyptus and licorice. Serious brooding bordeaux like structure. Will easily hold for another decade.

    December 25, 2011 - I shouldn't have worried about this bottle being spoiled - it was sensational! Very soft and velvety, liquid chocolate really. The only thing spoilt was those that shared the bottle!

    August 10, 2010 - Initially it looked like a tokay but then went on to become more like an amontillado sherry. Not sure if this bottle was representative of a truly good bottle but apart from curiosity this was lacking. Sweet fruited palate like christmas cake does have some lightness to the darker aspects but overall couldn't rate this one. With the huge reputation and given the wines age I wouldn't pay any serious money for one of these.

    (Penfolds Grange) was softer and ‘Burgundian’ as Brad noted, although it did gain in structure in the glass
