Community Tasting Notes 2

    December 10, 2017 - Less convincing than the Belgrave '81, showing some edges, some acidity and firm tannins.

    March 7, 2011 - Well and truly past it and maybe even in the cemetary? Still don't regret paying $25 at auction to try. I have been impressed with recent vintages of this wine and was keen to see an older wine. Looks great with classic medium blood red cab colours and a nose of woody old spice and herbal notes. Palate was mostly shot with not a lot of fruit or structure although some zingy acid and spice on the finish kept this wine from being a total write-off.
