Wine Notes

Tasting note: Excellent purple-crimson colour, deep but clear; an unashamedly full-bodied wine, black fruits in a girdle of grippy tannins; long-term cellaring should resolve those tannins, but the wine stains along two channels of the cork cause concern. Pray. (15-Feb-2010) [James Halliday]
