Mid red and mature appearance, 70% opaque. Slightly protruded cork. Initially quite smelly on the nose but this cleared up with time in the glass to reveal slightly sharp fruit. Balanced and rounded on the palate, a little sharp and acidic but turns nicely into a lovely fresh and fruity essence. Sharp aftertaste, then a lovely and huge aniseed finish. Very fine. 90/100.
