Decanter average score: 17pts/20 (90/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Stephen Brook 17 Ronan Sayburn MS 17.5 Steven Spurrier 16.5
Mature, tertiary, leathery, tobacco nose, with ripe, mulled fruits, liquorice and fine wood. The palate is rich, full-bodied and suave. It’s brighter and less evolved than the nose, has some zest and clarity. Not tiring and still has potential.
