Visiting an old friend. Now I'm down to 2 bottles in my cellar . I bought a case 25 years ago and every once in awhile I enjoy this ageless wine. It still has a soft mid pallet lingering red berry and tannic flavor. The richness of this Cabernet has done nothing but improve over the years. I dare say it will not further improve but hopefully it will linger at this quality level.the mouth feel is an experience in and of its self. What a wonderful treat🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 4 months ago

Been holding on to a few bottles only because I'm too lazy to open because of the wax seal. Actually, it's not that hard to open. Very smooth and a good time to drink. Would not suggest holding much longer. Had lunch with the family many years ago and they were very gracious welcoming us in their home. Also, they've been supporters of Meals on Wheels SF. Gotta respect those who respect and help the elderly!!! Cheers! — 7 years ago
Really smooth wine, leaves a lovely aftertaste, not too sharp and an easy drinker (the wine not me).
In my local corner shop I paid £9.99, a little expensive, I'd expect to see these prices in BP/Marks and Spencer or waitrose, however I like to support my local independent shop so I took a chance and glad I did!
BTW I'm not drinking in my local park, it's the only option near my house 😁 — 7 months ago
Something else. Peated high high. Comparable to the Laphroaig Quarter Cask. I'm on a boat — 5 years ago
Just a sip and I'm entranced. Full, rich, cocoa covered dark fruit and berries. Lush tannins leave me wanting more. In another year you will be lucky to share this one. — 6 years ago
Dark, sweet, youthful fruit. I'm not sure that this one was ready to go yet and rather sure infanticide just happened tonight. Still, a nice full bodied Amarone can be a delight when it is like THIS. Poured into glass with a very dark, black inky component. Nose of fig, molasses. The entry is sweet, with dark youthful, acidic blackberry and toasted caramel. The finish is sweeter, youthful fruit that is well-balanced. Not too hot, not too tannic. For being so young, and not really ready to go, I can only see how this one is going to drink in 3-4 years. 2018-2025 — 7 years ago
