  • Kind of stumbled across this in the cellar. Very old world. Musty nose. Fruit very muted but lingering finish. Glass smells wonderfully barnyard after finishing. Enjoyed much more than expected.

  • Decanted 3.5 hours. Classic Cabernet nose, seems to be on a plateau of maturity. Graphite, red and black currants, cedar, steeped tea. Maintains subtle red/black cherry sweetness well into the finish. Should drink well for the next 4-5 years easy.

  • Agree 100% with JerM's comments below - this is simply a stunning Aussie teenager...I didn't know what to expect, but was blown away by this pristine bottle at age 15. Have several more left and hope they're all in a similar condition...

  • (Brunner: Wines and Slow-Roast with Mich and Bo, Suyi and Newan) Dark tawny garnet. Great, immense pong of backalley flavors (cf Jln Alor), tar, pencil lead, dark berries, blackcurrants, beautifully perfumy nose. Generous unctious berries on the taste, lightened with sweet tea characters, in good balance with savory mushrooms, rusty tomatoes, dried hawberry, held up tall with fine but firm tannins (velvety). Sweet, savory, beautifully complex yet eleganty brewed, lightness, restrained and transparent at the same time, this bordeaux-esque beauty ends with an admirably persistent minty (eucalypt?) loamy finish. My WOTN.

  • Had at Nemacolin. Decanted and drank immediately. Extremely dark, almost brown. Muted fruit with an emphasis on plum. Very balanced with a long finish.
