Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intensely sherried. A huge aromatic array. Burnt caramel. Overcooked plum jam. Prunes. Dates, dried figs. Burning log.
Palate: Intensely sherried. Burnt caramel. Plum jam. Prunes. Dates, dried figs. Burning log.
Finish: Rather compact, less lingering than expected.
Comment: An old fellow on the edge of declining but with attractive sweet richness. No water, please!
8.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Tomato leaf, moving into balsamic. Fruit cake. Dry and woody. Oak, oak and more oak.
Palate: Casky deep and very tannic. Like chewing your way out of a wardrobe.
Finish: Tannin.
Comment: Overwooded.
