2003 Redman The Redman

redman_redmanOften, flagships can be a letdown. No such problem here. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot that’s in a gorgeous place right now but hasn’t finished its journey yet.

Intriguing bottle-age characters of meat jus, tomato seeds, jerky, faded leather and earth with a delectable mellowing of the wine in the mouth. Cigar box and soy too. Black and red currants remain vital and soft tannin is very much intact. Super length and plentiful mid-palate stuffing. So charming. This is why you cellar wine. 95 Excellent
