Very odd smell, maybe a bit of tobacco with a whiff of old tramp. Fortunately the taste is way better. Soft, warm and inviting, like an enormous quilt on a cold night (or, for the antipodeans, a well groomed sheep). Hints of marmite and dark fruits. Much more robust, and able to take care of […]
Probably not as spectacular as a 9 year old cab should be, but still decent. Claims to taste of black olives (amongst other things), which I agree with. Also smells of pepper, but that might be the after effects of the curry I made.
Beautiful deep purple colour but not much to smell or taste. Had it with a very mild chicken curry. Maybe needed something more robust? On the plus side, got this for a good price!
49% Merlot, 14% Petit Verdot, 12% Cab Sauvignon, 10% Mourvedre, 8% Pinotage, 7% Shiraz. Deep colour, liquorice flavours and that expensive wood and tobacco smell that good red blends seem to possess.
