Consumed at the Crusting Pipe on 16 May 2011.

Organisation thread.
Review thread.
Croft 1970 (JDAW)
Smith Woodhouse Madalena 1988 (DRT)

A second contribution to the evening from RAYC: Dark red. Big fruity entry followed by very dry tannins. Younger than its years. I guessed Dow 1985.

GC77. Bright red, 70% opaque. Nosing of plums and dry tannins. Medium-weight, all purple fruit, dry late-palate. Indian spices too.

I thought Martinez ’91. Others thought Bomfim ’87; Dow ’97; Dow ’85; Warre ’91.
