Deep red, dark in colour and opaque. Beautiful fresh nose full of blackcurrants. Hollow entry, initially amazingly light but then hidden fruit starts to appear and develops well to give a really good mouthfull of fruit. Delightful afteraste dominated by theblackcurrants and with a generous length. Very closed initially on the palate. One to tuck away for a few years as this is a little closed. 84/100. 11½ hour decant.
Cr91, brought by DRT on behalf of AS, and decanted at 8am. Red-purple, 90% opaque. Nose had leather and plum. Mid-weight, nicely balanced, plums, sweetness, heat late. Not monstrously big, but in five years will be wonderful drinking.
