Mature red appearance, 60% opaque. Sweet and dusty nose, lovely and lingering - great poise. Sweet fruit on entry and running throughout the palate. Sweet cherry and raisins, very rich and ripe - but with a surprising level of dry tannins and a burst of heat when aerating. Hot aftertaste with a quick flash of a fierce pepperiness then a dry and slightly bitter core growing into a delicious fruitiness and a good length. Very enjoyable. 91/100. Drunk 26-Sep-14. Decanted 29 hours.
