Just wondering if anybody could possibly tell how much a 95 Wolf Blass Black Label Cab Sauvignon would be worth today... and if it could benefit much more from another year in the cellar. thanks!

    Certainly good comments (from this merchant), which I transcribe below:

    Distinctive plum pudding, spice and chocolate are apparent on the nose while the palate is rich and generous with intense fruit flavours and vanillin oak characteristics. The palate is long, complex and lingering - a wine of undoubted class and distinction.

    The 1995 Black Label Cabernet Shiraz is the 23rd consecutive vintage of this outstanding Australian red wine. The previous 22 vintages have won more than 160 gold medals and 40 trophies in major Australian wine shows making Black Label one of Australia’s most successful wines. The current vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (54%) and Shiraz (46%) grown in 60% Langhorne Creek, 25% McLaren Vale, and 15% Barossa and Eden Valleys in South Australia.

    (My suggestion: open it now & enjoy!)

    1. ah excellent! thanks very much for your help
