Community Tasting Note

  • La Grappe Likes this wine: 92 points

    February 23, 2016 - A very deep, bronze colour. Rich, sweet, with marmalade and burnt sugar notes. Concentrated and long. This is fully mature and may even be starting to maderise slightly, but it is none the worse for that. This was from a half bottle, so larger formats may have further to go.
