"The age of the bottle has endowed the wine with a sweet woodsy note (wet forest floor after a rain) along with a wonderful balance of rich plummy fruit and fine, drying tannins. The wine still saturates the palate and lingers for a remarkable length of time." APW 03/17, tasted by Skinner specialists from this collection
