Mitchelton Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1990

This 21 year old wine from an ostensibly modest source made me wonder why I search so hard for good Bordeaux.  Were this wine tasted blind, I would certainly have mistaken it for a grand cru, and a good one at that.  It held its age effortlessly, and had a Bordeaux like aroma of cassis.  The palate had notes of sweet fruit and considerable length.  A truly excellent wine.  95 points.
