It's 10 years to the day since I last tasted this vintage, and this bottle at least (ex-Penfolds cellars) is fully mature and even a teensy bit past its prime, perhaps. What is beyond doubt is that it's still a great wine, handsomely complex and rewarding at the age of 46 years. Characteristic Schubert-era old leather boots, squashed-ant complexities abound, while the colour is thinning out a bit and is decidedly tawny in its tint, the tannins have mellowed out to a silky texture. The wine has wonderful balance and exudes magnificent character.
