Deep red to tawny/red - very mature in appearance.
Rich, complex, developed nose with hints of oak - very much the nose of a mature wine.
Well balanced and medium bodied with some cassis and spice flavours, ripe tannins and good balance. Excellent drinking now but not a wine for cellaring.
I don't know why this wine was so atypical - the unanimous verdict was that it was from a much earlier vintage - possibly 1983.
