Absolutely radiant, this is a sexy wine. Dark cherry, spice, earthy notes, leather (not heavy) and herbs.
The tannins dictate that the wine will be superior in around 8 to 10 more years and the silk long finish makes me happy to say I will definitely be revisiting this old flame again.
A touch brooding out of the bottle, this 30 year old wine doesn't take long to open up with a little air - revealing surprisingly fresh rich blackcurrants, forest floor and plums on the nose, with a really complex palette of berries, plum and minerals.
Ultra mellow acid with silky tannins - it melts in your mouth, soothes the tonsils and quite possibly cures cancer.
