Honey coloured rim, pale brown centre. Molasses on the nose (mild bottle stink) and an intriguing baked apple. Refined entry, the wine still tannic, with cinnamon and all spice. The spiced "baked apple" theme held throughout the flavours in the mouth but was replaced by a sweet and enjoyable butterscotch for the aftertaste. Perfectly balanced wine, but not with the elegance of the Fonseca 1920. 92/100.
