Howard Park Cabernet Merlot 1993 Wine Tasting Review

Vintage is in full swing, so the contingent of itinerants has too.

Back for another year of punishingly hard physical work, our friend from Sydney.

In his dilly-bag were some interesting bottles upon which we sipped and supped after digging out ferments, dropping mark in the back paddock to compost, checking baumes and more.

Howard Park Cabernet Merlot 1993 Wine Tasting Review

 

 

Well Looky Here

Surprisingly youthful in colour. 

Sniff Sniff

Rich, dry raisins, green capsicum.

Smokiness – a touch of coffee.

Warm creamy coffee.

A touch of dusty, musky old man perfume.

Sip Sip

Bold but with integrating, still softly dusty tannin.

Savoury but still some stewed, dried black fruit flavours.

Juiciness keeps it alive.

Drinking surprisingly well!

Nom Nom

We threw out the rule book and enjoyed this old boy with vegetarian “meat”balls, sweet potato mash, and supergrain salads.

Gimmie Gimmie

If you’re lucky, you might find one at auction.

12% alcohol.

Rating

Value – good.

Bronze – quite drinkable.
