Saturday, October 8, 2011 - Fill at neck line was certainly a worrying sign. A fragile cork didnt help the cause. This was decanted to rid the sediments. A pale red colour. I was expecting a better nose to palate; alas, the palate actually came out better than the nose! Nose was tea and most of all pruney - I feared the worst but perhaps this is the characteristics of aged wine. On the palate, much more youthful! The mouthfeel was thicker than what the nose would have suggested. I got both red fruits and earthy flavours. Wasnt sure how long the fruits would have lasted though coz the wine was polished off in no time. A lingering minerality towards the finish. All about sophistication and charm. A perfect ending to a nite of get-together with wine kakis (wine pals). Tks to pal Kenny for sharing his DRC.
