It’s always so good when a friend brings an old special bottle to dinner. Famous special label and regional variety too. Phew, this is a big fella. Still heaps of spicy, vanilla and coconut oak that still stands proudly next to big figgy, yellow peach and developing marmalade fruit. The firm acid finish somehow melds it all together. One for the barrel fans but some warm fruit generosity made the second glass as good as the first. No caricature but a sunny, warm and generous personality.
14.50% alcohol! Screwcap.
