Still going. Gentle carbonation and tiny trickle of bubbles. Aromas & flavours of strawberry, rhubarb, marmalade, lemon peel, caramel, treacle and toffee. Nicely maderized but still showing faint fruit. Probably was at peak ~5 yrs ago but I like the maderized profile, so no loss to me. Decent finish (30 sec) of strawberry rhubarb crumble, and loads of minerality. Now to 2015.
Beautiful copper colour in the glass. Some bubbles, but they are starting to fade. Aromas of fresh berries - currant, strawberry, - cream, lemon rind, caramel, cinnamon. Medium-full bodied, still somewhat lively in the mouth with red plums, berries, caramel. Moderate finish, 25-30s with red fruit, berries, and caramel. Drink now. A little disappointing.
