Community Tasting Notes 3

    August 10, 2013 - Tannins fully resolved, but still plenty of black cherry and roasted plum fruit, with a mocha note. Velvety mouth feel. Excellent example of a perfectly aged Margaret River cab.

    October 12, 2012 - Drank at Birmingham of liner Carl's house.
    Lovely balanced wine with good black berry and decent length

    March 20, 2005 - Still quite opaque, rich purple, little or no browning at the rim. Noticeable sediment caking the bottle (note to self - should have stood it up for more than an hour before opening!).
    Nose is (for me) typical cabernet, in a quite earthy, very faintly smoky style. Definitely more savoury than fruity.
    Quite austere (which I really like in Cabernet - just a personal taste), blackcurrant fruit is a little locked up, though with time in the glass it's opening up, revealing a hint of violets. Tannins are still noticeable (not strong though, just faintly drying), but well integrated. Quite fresh tasting acidity (might be too much so for some people) easing off into a long balanced finish.

    Overall, very impressed (as I was when we tasted it at cellar door 3-4 years ago). Plenty of life left in this & would have been interesting to wait for a few more years before pulling the cork. Might try & source some more (there was a UK importer for this vintage). I think it sells for about $35 in Aus.

    Sorry for all the words! Just happened to like this a lot.
