Drink Dates 2014-2019

Many reports that I have read featuring this wine suggested that 2007 - 2012 was to be the ideal drinking window for this wine. I can say without fear of contradiction that this wine is still drinking magnificently in 2014 and it suggests at least 5 more years at this ideal point to me. It has a lovely and inviting nose of black berry fruit and liqourice. The taste is full and the finish is unbelievably long. I felt that the blackcurrant and perhaps even raspberry flavours that accompanied a chocolate style richness of this wine were marvelous. It is drinking beautifully and accompanies roast pork delightfully. What a lovely wine.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
