Dinner with the Astorettes as we bid good bye to Acky (EU): very earthy nose, slightly volatile with notes of slightly cooked fruit and lots of white mushroom and leather - sweetly fruited with lots of furry tannins remaining, quite tannic in fact and out of balance for the remaining fruit which is particularly meaty and bloody supported by refreshing acidity. Not up to snuff and a far step below the 1990. Bottle looked to be in good shape but this has been better.
