A chance to try the iconic wine of Australia is pretty special but a chance to try one with age is amazing. This bottle was decanted for a couple of hours and then poured back into the bottle and served after an additional two hours. It was still a bit tight but opened up in the glass quite well. The nose has black cherries, black raspberries, black pepper and slight roasted meats and roasted herbs. On the palate, it is medium to full bodied. Great balance. Nice black raspberry and black cherry fruit over char. This is drinking well and probably at or close to peak. No hurry, there
