2002 Ringbolt Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon (Western Australia)

This was a big disappointment. Nose smelled of old meat and baker's chocolate. As it sat, it got a bit cardboardy too. On the palate, high acidity overwhelmed the flavors, leaving a narrow, pinched feel. 60. Avoid. Was $14.99 at Cost Plus on Richmond, but I wouldn't take another bottle even if they were giving it away.
