Changyu Cabernet Sauvignon Shandong China 2000

Member Review by ApelsecS:

Cork is in excellent shape. For 18 years old wine it's very refreshing in general thanks to good acidity. I would say it's better than 2003. Medium body, with pretty much standard old wine set of sluggish strawberry, blueberry, tobacco leather and minerality...long strawberry aftertaste. Nice wine for a good price.
