2005 Portteus Zin (redux)

A few months ago I blogged about the Portteus Zin. That post was in April but I actually drank it months before that (yes; I was padding out the blog a bit). Well, yesterday I brought a bottle of the same in to work to share with my coworkers. The wine has really settled down after sitting in the bottle for a year. The mineral taste and pepper was still there, but much more mellow. The wine was still very smooth with no hints of alcohol burn. I think I'll make a habit of letting it sit much longer before opening it. Ahh... the rewards of patience.
