Tawny color, translucent and clear. Enticing fragrant nose. Notes of sweet fruit, cranberries, rose petals and earth. Rich and impactful in the mouth. Long persisting finish. Still young. From a 375.

Really big rich fruit, very dark and almost impenetrable nose, a touch of liqourice.
Fills the mouth with masses of really fresh fruit. Very very smooth, magic intense lifting finish which goes on and on. Big underlying structure beneath
the fruit. Mouth coating, powerful, balanced, magic.

1977 in half bottle-still a baby and more caramel and spice than fruity. Good but needs another 10.

Still so youthful considering the age, needs another 20-30 years, as it's a little one dimensional right now.
