Orange peel, softened (after a decant), delicate red notes with a hint of sherry. Lacks a little depth in the middle but very pretty. Leather, dried roses. Long and very pretty.

Läder, apelsin, kryddnejlika, nypon, tjära och lite multna löv. Intensiv smak med avrundade tanniner. Syrlig apelsin, rönnbär och nypon. Friskt och elegant. Grym balans mellan syra tanniner och frukt. Magiskt gott

This leaked in transit so i popped it to see if there’s anything left. Dark colored still with bricking at the edges. A nose with wood, tar, dark dried cherry, herbs. Still good fruit with a real core of dark, brooding, quite gnarly and serious leathery stuff. A bit of Madeira... Noticeable tannins at the end, quite shrill. Old school and splendid. At 70 this has life left still!
