Cullen Diana Madeline 2007 – Second Bottle

Cullen Diana Madeline Margaret River 2007

The second bottle after the first one which was tasted about 3 years ago already…

Yes, this time the bottle was retrieved from the cellar fridge about six hours earlier, bottle standing up and rested to a good winter room temperature.

Deep and dense color, not really fragrance, but on the mouth it is really powerful wine. Long finish and last for couple minutes. Interesting blackcurrant after taste and very enjoyable. Not very silky but still fine in tannin.

All in all, 4 stars out of five for now !

The cellaring potential of this vintage is at least 20 years. I viewed this bottle 6 years aged (the first one was 3 years cellared). Thus, the tasting schedule for the remaining 4 bottles could be: 2017, 2022, 2027 and 2032, then this should be a good coverage of the cellaring effects 🙂
