F63: Fabulous dark red, 60% opaque. Nose had cedar and smoke. To taste leather, heat mid-palate, and massive cedar. Also lots of very dark fruit. Extremely long. This bottle needed another half decade in the cellar! One taster rightly said ‟marzipan spiciness”. JDAW.
Deep red in colour, 95% opaque and with a firm rim. A huge nose, full of mature fruit - spicy cranberry and cinammon. On the palate this is balanced, with plenty of fruit and soft fine tannins. Generous acidity keeps a sharp focus. Long, luscious and lingering finish. A fantastic bottle, in need of more time to reach its peak! 93/100. 11-Jun-12. Decanted 3 hours.
