Good red colour, but light in the centre and with a pale rim. Lovely mature nose, rich and spicy with lots of juniper venison stew. Rich and sweet in the mouth with big, moyuthfilling flavours and some terrific development. Quite a big wine. A burn on the immediate aftertaste, but this is quickly replaced by a delicious and lingering flavour. Very enjoyable. 92/100. Drunk 26 August 2009.

Very red, mid translucency. Sweet sugar, though a mite simple. Very very long, and sticky. Massively excellent for a ’75!
