1994 Tesco

Post by DRT » 22:09 Sat 09 May 2009

1994 Tesco BOB (believed Quarles Harris)
D+10hrs
Massive blackcurrant nose. Thick entry with lots of good black fruit. A little heat in the mid palate with some tannic dryness in the cheeks. Molases finish.

Nice wine which seems to be not too far off its drinking window, but not quite ready yet.

At £10-12 per bottle (if you buy when they have a sale on) this is excellent value compare to some 94s at retail prices.
