Mature, bright red, with a positive orange/brown meniscus; classic nose, cedar, spices and blackcurrants, warm and with good depth; on the palate drying and tannic, not so much dried out but austere rather than charming, with rusty, gravelly flavours and some dried cherries. Needs food.
Medium deep colour, dark red core; oak and spice, classic and compact, hint of cheese rind, dark fruit, cedar and coffee; disctinctly powerful structure, tannic grip, medium weight, relatively dry and tight but still juicy, has some fruit, acidity is starting to separate; good length. A good, classic 1962.
