Mid-red colour, red rim and opaque centre. Bottle stink on the nose. Thin entry and an acidic attack, tannins dominate the thin fruit. Big and chewy finish, full of tannin. Overall this feels unbalanced and cannot be a representative bottle. Whether this was representative or not was asked of the people manning the table, but Johnny Graham was elsewhere so the answers were vague. Not rated.

This doesn't appear to have a good reputation...
