Wynns 1990 John Riddoch
We had a bit of a celebration last night. Out came the King of the Coonawarra, Wynn's John Riddoch, from the highly acclaimed 1990 vintage. Some people say the vintage's wines were too ripe and wouldn't last. Well, this wine we drank last night was at its peak. It still had great ripe redcurrant flavours, excellent structure and mouthfeel and lasted and lasted from the tip of the tongue down the throat. My experiences with Wynns wines have not always been good, but this was outstanding. I have a bottle of the 1990 Michael left, and it will come out soon as well, I think.
