Nose
Aromas as dark as the colour. Prunes in Armagnac.
Palate
Soft. Fruity. Spicy. Cinnamon.
Finish
Dusty. Venerable.
Comment
After dinner. Or with a re-run of Inspector Morse.

Nose
Big, intense, ‘sherried'. Black cherry, raisin, wet leather, blackstrap, resinous, rancio. Dark and funky with some sweet notes. Promises a lot...
Palate
...then the tannins clamp onto your tongue like a pack of terriers.
Finish
Bitter (cubed).
Comment
For all the interest on the nose this is not a great drinking experience.
