Aromas of ripe fruit-conserve – dark fruit too. Fine tannin with lots of cream-edged fruit. This wine makes an impression this lingers well in the finish.
A slightly porty fruit quickly, but not entirely gives way to beef, almonds, width and warmth – impressive and very complex. The acidity just has a hint of balsamic character, so probably best not to leave this for another 30+ years, but there is width and dimension on the perfectly textured mid-palate and it’s very long. This was savoured over about 3+ hours and it never faded. Super.
