Dark scarlet tawny, almost opaque. Strongly scented. Notes of kirsch, dark soaked cherries, blue fruit, herbs, and some pine wood. Powerful in the mouth. Almost over the top. A bit hot and Port-like, and a bit too stewy to enjoy unless accompanied with something like cheese to tone it down. Representative of the vintage, but not my preferred style.

As the name says, it was a "Meal". Still to young. Don't look at for a decade.

Just over the top, stewed, olive. Not a great vintage.
