Fun model but she's wasn't down to pose for the Delectable community and ducked away when I started to snap the pic haha....so this is for the elbow and shoulder lovers. The Core is a treat. Mocha and full blue/black fruits. A bit of bite when it warms up but a very nice wine.

Not too sure of this wine right now. It's not a bad wine, but lots of tannins overpower the fruit at the moment. Will be interesting to see whether aging takes the edge off. I personally don't think it has sufficient strength to do so, but I'd be happy to be wrong in six years time

This one is going to be to have to sit in the bottle for a few years to hit its peak.

Fantastic and powerful Cab! Really opened up with a few hours decant. Structure, balance, yet full-throttle fruit! Definitely one of my top wines of 2013!
