Dense, almost impenetrable dark red. Blackberry nip nose. Very forward fleshy and fruity palate. Also jubey but much more weight than the 90. Alcohol poking out. Was there a change in style starting from 90?

Medium red, with a good depth f colour but appearing to be mature and ready to drink; 80% opaque. Stewed cherries on the nose, with a lovely fresh lavender. Sweet on the palate, gentle fruit of generous volume. Dry chocolate tannins show on the aftertaste, before a delicious finish of sweet and concentrated fruit. 90/100
