Second of the 3 horizontal 1994 and this was decanted for 2 hours. Dark garnet, almost opaque core with vibrant crimson hue . The nose is still tight & backward, showing subtle sweet ripe fruits, tobacco, minerals, hints of smoke and sweet vanilla oak. Slowly open up to more polished nose and Blackcurrant. Nice structured entry, blackcurrant, dark berries, dark cherry, fresh herbs, tobacco and toasty oak , still fresh & young with a savoury touch. Long finish and firm chewy tannins. Plenty of years ahead, no hurry to drink.
Double-decanted ..... Opaque color,complex nose:Earth,white pepper,black cherries,strawberry jam,tobacco,spices,truffle.Medium bodied,not the greatest depth,not very powerful but with lovely integrated acidity,fine tannins and excellent balance and length....very pleasant.Drink it now!
