S35, red 60% opaque. Red fruit, then sweetness. Very long strawberry flavour, staying in the mouth for ages. Mid-palate a touch of dryness, that I originally thought an imperfection, but isn’t necessarily so.

50% opaque, deep red in colour. Showing little on the nose, perhaps some hints of concentrated redcurrant. Smooth and concentrated on entry; full bodied and with good weight. Blossoms beautifully in the mouth, develops and grows. Explodes on the aftertaste with huge fruit flavours dominating - mature and sweet. Incredible finish! An astonishing wine. After 5½ hours in the glass this had even developed hints of tannins! 94/100.
