Henschke Keyneton 1986 Revisited
Its well over six months since I sold the last bottle, but by god this wine seems to have got better. Really richly intense fruity nose, berries quite dominant, with that spicy richness of shiraz jostling for attention over the currantly fruit of the cabernet and the damson and violet tones of the malbec. Still a very fine suspension of sediment in the wine, but I think this adds to the flavour and character, and it would certainly be clearer without it, but I think it would taste duller too.
