Pop-n-pour after and extremely nice ribeye roast...

Nose of yellow fruit, bannana? mango? Is a mango yellow? - let's agree on "something tropical".

Medium weight with very rich black fruits in the mouth. Christmas cake without the brandy sauce. Some tannic dryness in the mid-palate but that soon fades into a fruity and delicious finish.

I don't normally do TNs these days but I am aware that the team in the UK might have significant stocks of this so an update might be helpful. It is fine to leave these alone for now - but drinking is pleasurable and I'm not sure they should be at the back of the queue of what you plan to drink in the next 30 years.
