TN's - 2005 Linne Calodo and 2002 Kilikanoon Oracle

2005 - Linne Calodo Contrarian - Rousanne / Viognier - Pineapple, pear and club soda, all primary but slightly muted flavors, not as viscous as I would have hoped, slightly above mediocre.

2002 - Kilikanoon Oracle - Double decanted and tasted after 30 minutes - A deep black and purple shiraz with pepper and blueberry on the nose, taste added light vanilla some blackberry jam, and some bell pepper, (slight veggie element), finish was jammy…AFTER 90 minutes suddenly the fruit faded and there was nothing left. Never had this happen with this wine before. Ended up disappointing. I will try again another day.

Check back in on this one in 2027…the fruit will reappear.

Seriously, I like some Kilikanoon wines but I would not age them too long.

Daniel - I am hoping that this was an exception. If not, time to drink up. Regards, John
