Colgin - Red IX Estate
Decanted for two hours before tasting. A deep almost black color with a huge nose of blue and blackberries beautifully integrated tannins with an incredible long 60 second finish. An incredible wine too be drunk now and over the next twenty or more years. This wine built to last for many years.
Fabulous wine - great nose - great taste - wonderful finish - very unexpected for a 44 year old bordeaux - very little brown - finished bottle 48 hours after opening - fabulous wine.
Fortunate Son - Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep dark ruby red, wonderful nose of big red berries with hints of tobacco and cassis, long finish with soft tannins.
Beringer - Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve
Deep dark rich wine with a beautiful nose of blackberries, cedar and cassis, a great mouthfeel thick and vicious, nicely integrated tannins with a long luxurious finish. Drink now and for another five years.
Scarecrow - Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep ruby red with a gorgeous nose a fantastic mouthfeel with velvety tannins and an extremely long finish. An amazing wine. Thank goodness I have more.
