Don't you just hate it when the last glass is the best? The bottle was opened and aired....and showed all the fighting qualities the 'Knox' has. The 2004 was more approachable a few months ago. Big bold flavours here....and tannins are tightly packaged..of all the ABC wines..this always shows a masculinity.
Next day..the last third of the bottle..raspberries on the nose...still slightly funky...juicy flavours..and now showing why it is so highly rated. I promise to open the next 'Knox' 2 days in advance in future.
