Whilst essentially as earlier notes, just starting to show its age with truffly hints (that I like) coming into the mix. Still enough grip but see no point in holding for more than a couple of years max. Excellent but for drinking up.
Looking forward to a couple of weeks+ break from next Wednesday in FLA for a friend's son's wedding (Ft Lauderdale) then touring: (The Keys, Everglades, Orlando - NOT Disney!, Cape Canaveral) and, in a wonderful coincidence, watching No.2 daughter playing polo at The Villages. Restaurants being booked online!
Inky purple black, intense blackberry fruit, with oak and vanilla, strong backbone and somewhat over the top alcohol showing through. Would score higher if fully balanced but this is not quite fully qnit together and has a few harsh edges.
