(From 1983 Vintage) Very ripe bramble and plum nose, with hot and jammy undertones. Loads of ripe fruit flavors, with massive concentration and great length.This Vintage is beginning to show some of the wonderful characteristics of bottle-matured wine. It can be drunk now but will repay a few more years in your cellar. Excellent soft fruit with lovely length.
