Mineral component and cassis coming through and setting table for woody and earthy aromas. Mouth offers density and polished tanins. Good length with fruit echoing in retro.

In honer of the Porter's visit. Decanted 45 minutes. Faded garnet core with pronounced age on the rim. Leads with graphite and leather, then currants, dried cranberry and notes of cigar box and forest floor. Fruits come through first on the palate and giving similar aromas to the nose, immediately followed by earth, tobacco, wet soil. Medium bodied with moderate viscosity. Still showing tannic structure through the medium+ length finish. Very enjoyable but I believe it'll improve with 5-10 more years.

Red currant and a fair bit of savory bell pepper, great elegance with a good bit of fine tannin and drinking very well. An outstanding performance from a vintage that is generally mediocre at best.

I bought this one about 25 years ago, stored it correctly in the Cave. Of course it’s decent, but I am disappointed that it’s not spectacular.

Coravin night at Robbie’s, and this one was instructive. Lesson: once bottle half gone, the clocks ticking in days not weeks, so don’t kid yourself. Pure dark cherry and plenty of cigar box, but flat. Nonetheless neat to drink. - Robbie’s, London
