YAY can’t believe I have managed to create a thread upon the mighty TWS community site thingy, at such a time of excess, good fortune and joy. Or something like that.
Tonight, TWS “The Liberator ‘The Good, The Bad and The Sangiovese’, Western Cape 2003” a truly awful name (and label) for a rather good wine. At 17 years old; you get a wine heading towards an antique mahogany colour, a nose like a light vintage port / dirty aquariums, and tastes like an old wine that isn’t too far gone yet still quite drinkable with the Nebbiolo etc coming through clearly.
I appreciate that might not sound too enticing… but to old wine aficionados, it’s like catnip.
