Judges Tasting Notes

The deep red core colour shades to a small tawny edge. Secondary matter characters, leather, dried tobacco leaf, prune and a refreshing lift of spiced plum pudding. This is holding up very well for its age, still retaining freshness, drive and vitality. Full in the mouth, with a medium finish.
