Soft and elegant but lacking fruit . More tomato leaf and tobacco but still has the body.

Red currant and plum with wet tobacco and wet gravel. Has the underlying structure to go on for a while longer Delicious.

Lots of eucalyptus at opening. 15 mins in it begins to settle in. Leather, mushroom on the nose with the ever present eucalyptus. Really well structure fruit on the palette, a tinge of acidity and a bit sharp on the finish. More time in the glass brings a balance that’s amazing for a 39 year old wine. Thankfully no one here to share!

Ok absolutely insane bottle. 6L for Vikrant’s promotion at burnt ends. Tobacco chocolate vanilla baking spice red fruit berries. The acid really stood up to the tannins cedar. 1996 🔥

This wine drank well for 20 minutes and then went flat. Way past its prime.
