Today's wine
Brian Barry, Juds Hill Vinyard (Clare Valley) 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon.

A wine we bought over ten years ago, when very young. Then, at the tasting, it was raw and had a liquorice flavour. Now, after all that time in bottle, it is smooth and rich, with the liquorice reduced to a hint and the blackberry flavour to the fore. A complex wine, now dry and subtle, with the grape kicking in at the very end.

I'm glad your patience has been rewarded!

With all the variety of wines at our disposal, I'm sometimes surprised how few older wines are offered on sale.
