Chateau Reynella McLaren Vale Basket Pressed Cabernet Merlot, 1994

I bought lots of Chateau Reynella basket pressed wines during the mid-1990s: Shiraz, Cabernet and Cabernet Merlot. They were very good young and at all stages of their development. Unfortunately, only a few are left, but they are still bringing pleasure.

Good color for a 22-year-old wine. And lively smells and flavors. Red currant with minty tones and a hint of black tea on the mid-palate. Australian Cabernets are sometimes weak in the mid-palate. This one isn't. Smooth and elegant from front to back. This is my style of Cabernet.
