Hill & Dale 2003

(December 29, 2016) ... My last notable wine of 2016 was this Hill & Dale 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz which, when I posted on Facebook and Instagram, many thought it was Over-the-Hill & Dale, and I would have thought so too, so wasn't I pleasantly surprised to find out that not only wasn't this wine completely dead, but actually was drinking quite well; sure it was old and showed its age but there was no reason I could find not to drink it: leathery notes with mocha/coffee, and some smoky - peppery-ness to the finish ... paint me impressed.
