Decanter #6: Warre, as dark as the Graham (#1) and the Smith Woodhouse (#3). Nosing of a spice that I though might be nutmeg, but the taste merely described as “very closed and heavy†? Was this Fonseca, I wondered, incorrectly.

Deep centre, still opaque, with the colour holding into the rim. Not too much coming through on the nose but some tones of eucalyptus. Thick and sweet, lovely texture on the tongue and with masses of fruit. Very good length. Excellent wine. 90/100.
