It’s a bit like the 1996 in style I’d suggest in that it’s firm and has structure over fruit volume. That’s a vintage some love (me) and others don’t so much. Blackcurrant, strong menthol character, tobacco and pencil. It’s firm and muscular with the graphite-like tannin that’s typical of many from this vintage dominating the palate. Controlled and strict, but with ample fruit, it’s a long way away from the round ball of mid-palate fruit that so many Coonawarra Cabs show. Here’s a serious wine that will need decades to unwind. Does have a lack of flesh on the mid-palate (as per CM) but I suspect it’s just buried under the all the scaffolding at present, waiting to be revealed. Difficult wine to rate in some respects. I could give it 91+ or 93+ – reckon it will be good with time. Perhaps a classic. Something like Bordeaux for structure here. Let’s go with 93+ and drink from 2020-2040.
