Tahbilk Victorian Cabernet Sauvignon, 1990

Like the Inglenook (below), this wine, too, is in decline. The bouquet, though, offers up scents of black fruits and smokey old oak. Smoother texture and more depth of fruit on the finish than the Inglenook.

In terms of bouquet and flavor, though, neither of these New World Cabs from 1990 come close to the 1981 Chateau d'Angludet I had a few weeks ago or even the 1983 Patache d'Aux I had earlier in the year.
