[Blind, UKP14.5 in 1996]
Deeper in colour - red/purple paling evenly to rim.
Mature, beefy, vegetal aromas with some raisined fruit - slightly dumb.
Medium bodied and dry, with tart cherry/forest fruit flavours, hints of tobacco, and good acidity throughout.
Long finish with tangy oak and almond flavours.
[Guess: Italian Barbera again - seems too spicy and acidic to be Pinot Noir]
