Changyu Cabernet Sauvignon Shandong China 2003

Member Review by ApelsecS:

14 years old wine for 10$ - awesome deal! Cork is in good shape. Beautiful golden-red color. Plums, mild wood and tobacco nose. Good acidity, medium texture plums and cranberries in flavor. Some sediment on bottom, as it should be.

Cork is in excellent shape. For 18 years old wine it's very refreshing in general thanks to good acidity. I would say it's better than 2003. Medium body, with pretty much standard old wine set of sluggish strawberry, blueberry, tobacco leather and minerality...long strawberry aftertaste. Nice wine for a good price.
