Ex-cellars. Deep mature brick-red colour; 70% opaque. Nosing of sweet red fruit with an interesting gentle wood smoke hint. Rounded and with a thick texture on the palate; dusty with hints of gentle tannins hiding in the impressively fruity palate. There is a great freshness to the raspberry fruit. The sweet raspberries burst into song on the aftertaste and lead to a sticky red jelly baby finish. Very, very impressive. 94/100. Drunk 06-Apr-17. Decanted 3 hours.
