1960 Graham

Post by AHB » 09:44 Thu 13 Sep 2012

A compromised bottle, whose cork fell into the wine when the bottle was collected from auction. Warm red, lots of bricking; 50% opaque. Rosemary dominated nose, heavily oxidised. Sour impact on the palate, with rosemary again dominating the sharp and angular wine. Acidic aftertaste, with an unpleasant and hot finish. A bad bottle. Not rated.

One of the wines drunk at the offline on 11th September 2012.

G60. Red-brown, 60% opaque. Nose very oxidised. Taste very acidic, with menthol candy and VA. Weird.
