A youthful ruby red in color. Superb aromas of perfumed wood spice, graphite, blackish small fruits and a touch of incense. Very balanced in the mouth with ripe, sweet crushed black fruits, soil tones, medium acidity, melting tannins and a woodsy finish. At 20 years this is come to its own and is showing very, very well.
My WOTN edging out the '82 by hair. This showed a bit more vibrancy and fruit then the '82 without sacrificing any of the depth and nuance. Perfectly weightless for a BDX and in a very nice spot tonight. Steve said he sourced this btl on release which never hurts.
