I have always been a conundrum fan until I drank this bottle with my girlfriend. It has a very distasteful aroma to it. I would describe this aroma as being very close to to sheep manure. The flavor profile was terrible. This is the last time I'm purchasing condundrum. I will never buy it again. Terrible vintage, at it's VERY WORSE! Avoid at all costs!
This wine was given to be for my birthday a couple of years ago and it was already quite aged. Being bottled close to 8 years ago I decided to open it for New Years day 2012. Expecting that the wine is cheaply made it tasted quite a bit like grape juice. Lots of plum flavor and a dash of pepper but offering not that much more. What surprised me was how it was still drinkable after cellaring it for such a long time. I wouldn't rate this any higher than 85 points.
