Hunter Valley, New South Wales
15.5%, screwcap, around $28
A nose of prunes and charcoal with some red berries. Upon entrance, the soft mouthfeel was immediately discernible, followed by dull fruit, which then lead to a sharp finish and some warmth from the alcohol. I recall liking it when I sampled it at the cellar door years ago. However, this wine may have been crafted for early consumption as opposed to the five years that I have allowed it to have. Quite disappointing really - 82.
