Tasted blind. Reddish tawny, thin and very old looking. Notes of brown sugar, molasses, some wood. Medicinal. In the mouth it’s different than what I expected. Tastes like Port, but looks and smells like Madeira. Someone guesses Vin Santo. But based on the taste I go with old Port. — 4 days ago

Restrained class. YY quality fruit just left to talk in a quiet pure way. Blue and black bramble fruit on the nose matched on the palate. Less peppery than a Cote Rotie, but the powdery tannins, power without weight, and mataro/viognier give the same balance and complexity. Will make old bones. — 9 days ago

I have had this wine for a period of time and have been interested in opening it for some time. This is ths 2010 Yarra Yering Dry Red No. 1. A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 9% Malbec and 8% Petit Verdot from Yarra Valley Australia.
On the nose there are strong notes of black cherry, blackberry, heavy licorice, tar, tobacco, black pepper, green bell pepper, leather and dark rich earth.
On the palate there are good expressive notes of black cherry, blackberry, black plum, green bell pepper, tar, black currant and earth.
The wine is full bodied with a smooth velvety mouthfeel, medium to medium+ acidity and medium to medium+ fine tannins with a medium to long black fruit tar finish. A beautiful bottle of wine with many years of life left. Continue having a wonderful week and make the remainder prosperous. Stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 15 days ago
