This was a little thinner than I had hoped for. However, it had a good claret appearance with no signs of ageing. Blackberry, black cherry, tobacco and gravel smells with sweet, plum and liquorice on the palate. Overall this was a medium bodied wine ready for drinking. Very good.
Krug - Grande Cuvee
Better than ever!!
Croix St Georges (Pomerol)
A fully developed wine with lots of plumy Pomerol character. It looked and smelled fantastic with cherry and plum with warm spice on the palate and great length and finish. Beautifully balanced. Excellent.
This wine has developed nicely since I last tried it and has good body and length. Raisins, honey and sweet citrus on the palate and dried fruits, straw, syrup and raisins on the ablate. I am looking forward to the next bottle. Excellent.
Ravenswood - Zinfandel Vintners Blend
Quite youthful looking with a garnet colour. Smells of stewed blackberry and apple, cinnamon, strong prunes and dried green herbs. On the palate again stewed fruits, black cherries and a slight smokiness. Pepper on the finish. Overall this was an enjoyable bottle of wine.
