Tasting notes

09/06/2012

Ethereal and sweet aromas of boiled plum, flowers, tar, smoke, cherry, undergrowth and mushrooms. Needs food as it has hefty, ripe tannins and a good weight of fruit. Assertive and youthful with integrated oak. Old fashioned but imposing. Drink from 2014. Alc: 13.5%. (17.17 points)
