Wolf Blass 2004 Yellow Label Cabernet Sauvignon (Australia)
Tonight I grabbed the first thing that caught my eye - actually it was the neck of the bottle that caught my eye, in truth it was an unremarkable capsule, but for some reason it caught my eye. When I pulled out the bottle I was surprised to see the familiar Wolf Blass label staring back at me. At first the wine was a little grapy in flavour, quaffable, but more Welsh's than Wolf ... but then it developed a nice white pepper note and a somewhere between dried and fresh fruit taste ... not at it's peak, but definitely not in the trough either ... it was just right for tonight.
