Allinda Cabernets 1997

Allinda produced a great wine in 2001.  Their 1997 vintage though is well past its best in 2011.  An aroma of menthol, black tea, herbs and a crumbling cork (on all 3 bottles).  It required a tea strainer such was the poor state of the cork.  The palate was a bit thin.  It's drinkable, not faulty, but not enjoyable.  75 points.
