    (1995 Vintage) Fresher red-ruby color. Deeper aromas of plum, chocolate and smoky oak. Fat, sweet and pliant in the mouth, with black fruit and smoky oak notes; by far the warmest and most inviting of these three vintages, with rather low acidity. Tannins began rather lush, but showed a dusty quality with aeration.

    (1995 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Toasty nose. Soft texture, toast and tobacco flavours on the palate.
