Graves and Sauternes Dinner (RSJ, Southwark, London): Medium garnet core, wide pale rim. Nose is quite fungal, mushroomy, earth. Medium bodied, quite harmonious in palate if unexciting, less mushroomy, vestiges of dried red fruit, medium length finish. Drinkable **.
Graves @ RSJ (RSJ, London): Mid to full garnet. A nicely savoury nose with a sense of sweetness. Fresh, good acidity. Just a bit of padding left through the middle but relatively linear. A touch green too and a Woody edg. In retreat. (*)**
This bottle had a somewhat dried out cork and looked heavily bricked on pouring. The wine however picked up and actually showed quite a bit of body. Black plum and currant, leather, tobacco. Despite some tertiary notes this was not especially complex, but it was nice, and I ordered a couple bottles before night was over. B
