D63 dark red, 60%. Nosing of plums, with gentle heat. To taste very good, with plum and cherry. JDAW.

Deep red, honey coloured rim. Fresh and inviting nose. Smooth entry onto the palate, structured and refined with big fruit and very gentle tannins. Big aftertaste, a touch of fire then a long and intense finish. Overall, this is showing surprisingly youthful and vigorous but with a great focus - could do with another decade. 93/100. 10-Jun-12. Decanted 9 hours.
