Mixed spice, sweet, black currant plum dark and rich, ripe for drinking…now!
That’s a hint!
sweet blackberries, liquorice & spice.
Certainly packs a punch.
Glad I poured it an hour or so ago
Can I just ask - who here has decanted their red?
- Decanted it
- Poured it straight from the bottle
We’ve packed our decanter so we’re seeing how we go with swirling it around a bit first.
On the nose, this is lovely, lovely perfumed aroma in a kind of a nice Margaux way. Ripe Strawberry and blackberry spiced with mocha, black pepper and cloves. Touch of Vanilla, blueberries and pure sunshine.
Blackcurrent jam for me. The sort in a dinky little jar you get with cream tea at any NT property… mmmm…
Same as me then Leah !!!
Absolutely. Not the dry-wipe ones either - it’s the proper permanent marker.
Oak on the nose?
Congratulations on your house by the way!!
Proper Aussie Shiraz
Recently had the 2014 en magnum and it was gorgeous after a few hours
We could decant the 60% that’s left!
Let’s get tasting then! What do you all think? And what foods would you match it with? Is it a good bet for Christmas?
Yes used on the new whiteboard, duster in hand then you look again at the pen.
Agreed! Just a bit of each - very subtle, but nice…
Who’s got that kind of time?!!..
OH here: Crikey, you’re right, that’s what it is, in amongst the blackberries, spice & alcohol, old car inner tubes, I’d never have got it but you’re right.
Its either decant and forget or forget to decant for me…
Did OK with this one - it got an hour
I’ll take my hat off if you could drink a magnum in less than a few hours!
I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s done that.
