The line-up of bottles was interesting: five were from the same year, three were the same wine and two were decanted from the same bottle.

This was pale, red going to brown but very light - only about 20 - 30% opaque.
Still had some jamminess on the nose.
On the palate, thin at the start, a confectionery, jellyish middle, with only slight tannins at the end. Not a very long finish.
