Pale in colour, a dull burnt sienna, and slightly cloudy. Hot on the nose, smelling slightly of burnt rubber. Oranges and citric acidity in the mouth with the acidity creating quite a lot of heat. Dry and mostly dried out but showing some citric fruit - think of biting into an unripe orange. Strange sensation of tannins. A huge burst of heat on swallowing, which takes a long time to fade but eventually settles into a long and delicious finish. 90/100. Drunk 29 June 2009.
