Glowing red colour, mature tone; 80% opaque. A touch empty on the nose at first and then a big dose of sea salt and ozone. Quite thick in texture, smooth entry with lots of fairly youthful fruit — vigorous and spritely; robust yet having been softened by time. A big burst of fruit on the aftertaste before a slight woody tone comes into the flavour profile. The finish is long and full of vigorous fruit. Delicious fruit. Served blind this was guessed to be Dow 1985. 94/100. Drunk 10-May-17. Decanted 8 hours.
