This 8 year old Obtuse is officially close to the end of its drinking window, but I find it so delicious and vibrant, I think it could still go many years. Just a great desert wine, and this coming from the I am not a dessert wine at all guy. On the nose, this wine is incredible - bringing up childhood memories from collecting black berry,boysenberry, and red currant in the local woods in Northern Germany. Never quite had that experience with any other wine.

This is a Cabernet Sauvignon wine based, made in Port style I found the green bell pepper jam lifted by the ripe black sour cherry. Delicious!

Great wine, nice balance and true Cabernet style. I prefer the Isosceles over this version however.
