Initially reductive with aromas of H2S which blew off. Vegetal stalky notes with red fruits. A medium weight palate with a little raspberry and those whole bunch stalky notes. Needed a little more mid palate fruit. In the elegant style - I have had better examples of Underhill. — 14 days ago
Tasted blind. Reddish tawny, thin and very old looking. Notes of brown sugar, molasses, some wood. Medicinal. In the mouth it’s different than what I expected. Tastes like Port, but looks and smells like Madeira. Someone guesses Vin Santo. But based on the taste I go with old Port. — 5 days ago

I have had this wine for a period of time and have been interested in opening it for some time. This is ths 2010 Yarra Yering Dry Red No. 1. A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 9% Malbec and 8% Petit Verdot from Yarra Valley Australia.
On the nose there are strong notes of black cherry, blackberry, heavy licorice, tar, tobacco, black pepper, green bell pepper, leather and dark rich earth.
On the palate there are good expressive notes of black cherry, blackberry, black plum, green bell pepper, tar, black currant and earth.
The wine is full bodied with a smooth velvety mouthfeel, medium to medium+ acidity and medium to medium+ fine tannins with a medium to long black fruit tar finish. A beautiful bottle of wine with many years of life left. Continue having a wonderful week and make the remainder prosperous. Stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 16 days ago
