Community Tasting Note

  • La Grappe wrote: 89 points

    February 23, 2019 - Quite a mature colour; soft, slightly earthy, with mature plum/blackberry fruit, medium weight and good length. This is probably at its best now, so no need to hold any longer.

I ask that because the storage conditions throughout the 12 plus years that this has "been in glass" could be why it is showing more maturity than it should. Thus, to give context to your review, please share what you can about storage/provenance. (I have a couple bottles of the 2004 CS which is why I ask the question.)

Looking at other tasters’ notes, the general impression is that this is for drinking now rather than keeping, although there is no hurry. I hope that helps.
