Pale red, surprisingly mature; 60% opaque. Unfortunately lots of bottle stink on the nose, lots of reductive tones. Soft and a little flabby on the palate; does come with some mid-palate acidity and soft tannins. Eventually delivers a large palate presence with some good, sweet fruit. Sweet aniseed finish but the alcohol makes the cheeks tingle. 86/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
