Nice flavor of heavy fruit with refined tannins.

To date, this is the oldest wine I've had the privilege of drinking. It poured a dark, cloudy maroon in the glass with brick/brown edges. Leather and dust on the nose, with a hint of blackberry, and after breathing, blueberry. On the second day, the wine gave off pronounced aromas of cinnamon. (And it was good.) On the palate, subtle notes of leather, mushroom, licorice and blackcurrant, with the fruit opening up more as time went by. Tannins were soft but still around, and the balance was great. www.convictedforgrape.com

As a diplomat, I drank wine all around the world for my country. Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, dollar-for-doallar is one of the best wines I have ever tasted.

The vintner makes Pedro Ximinex grapes which are used to make Cream Sherries different from regular sherries. He then takes a large portion of the juice and makes this wine. The trick is that he stores it for 25 years in oak barrells and just lets it sit and mellow. Then each year he tastes it to determine which year is "ready" for release. The last couple batches were 1979 (available now), 1971 (last year) and 1974 a couple years ago. Typically sold in 1/2 bottles full size bottles are made as well (at least teh 1974 release was done in both sizes). When he thinks they are ready then they are bottled and released. This is why a 30 year old wine has a new label. This is a robust fruity sweet wine. But don't think Muscatto. A tawny Port might be the closest flavor to this but not nearly as rough to the pallette as most ports. You'd be tempted to match this with Chocolate or Cherries but in real terms this is a desert in a glass. We prefer to drink it in small apertiff styled glasses as you drain the whole bottle way to fast any other way. You can uncork it today and just put the sork back in the bottle and it will remain good for weeks. Does not go vinegary. Does not need to breath as the flavor will not shift with air. When you take the first sip you'll get cherries and currants. As you let it go down the back of your throat the flavors will shift. After you swallow the residual will be yet different again. The experience is very pleasant. I've not met anyone that did not really love it.

I am new to wine. I have been a bourbon/whiskey/scotch drinker for a long time. I have had several various wines over the last few years and found little enjoyment in any of them. Evil cabernet sauvignon has changed that. This wine has inspired me to move past my traditional vices and try new things. I have had several cabernet sauvignons in the past and this has been the first to impress me enough to finish the bottle and buy another. I recommend this to anyone who is in doubt of wine or anyone who wants to try something new. I do not consider myself a wine afficionado by any means, but this bottle has inspired me to pursue a new avenue of beverage completely different from those I prefer. This wine may be my conversion from bourbon to red.
