Lakes Folly Cabernets 2007

2007 was a good year in the Hunter for reds. A blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 14% Petit Verdot. Opened for 4 hours before tasting. Colour-wise, a black core with red edges. Smell-wise, black fruits, cola, cedar, vanilla, herbs and a touch of sarsaparilla. Young. Taste-wise, currants and raspberries, earth and spice, cloves, cedar, savoury fruits with a drying edge. Smooth with good tannins. A touch of something tinny or metallic on the finish, but only a smidge. Lovely drinking now and should do 10 years plus, as is typical for the marque. Sealed under cork. $55. 13% abv. Drink 2010-2017+. 92 points.

    Sounds very familiar and indeed similar to your previous TN.
    The remark about the metalic smidge is new and a bit of a worry.
    Bought a dozen half bottles and had to stop myself after consuming
    4 of them straight after the arrival!

    Yes, tinnyness worries me too. I am drinking up over the next few years…
