Community Tasting Notes 2

    August 6, 2014 - Graemeg got it wrong all those years ago (see previous review from 2004) - the Redman Claret (counter-intuitively) was the shiraz, and the Cab Sav has always been labelled as Cab Sav. Aged Redmans never fail to intrigue and can be relied on to develop into something interesting. This one's new to me, though - it is remarkably like a vintage port! I kid you not, and it is an extremely disturbing experience. Is it flawed? Is it oxidised? Someone with more skill than me would have to be the judge of that. Flawed or not it was delicious. No fruit whatsoever (not a drawback for me, as long as something else has taken its place) and distinctive grain/cereal overtones (barley?). Looooong finish which coats the mouth. Like I said, this is so unusual it may have actually been flawed, but it serves to reconfirm my faith in aged Redman wines (both Cab Savs and Shiraz/Clarets).

    August 2, 2004 - NobleRottersSydney - 1990 night (Lucio's, Paddington): 12% Labelled 'Claret', of course. Brick red. Smoky nose, with earth and bacon fat. Some herbaceousness. Tannins are soft on palate, and acid is beginning to become prominent. Weight is on the light side of medium. Attractive lighter style food wine, pleasant enough in isolation, but outclassed in this company. At, or just past, its drinking peak. Not bad at all, though.
