It shows a light, orange-tinted amber colour, has a magnificent nose showing an array of dried fruits. On the palate, it is concentrated with full honeyed fruit. Gorgeously mellow, with an amazing, long finish.

Wine Spectator : 93/100
Jancis Robinson : 19/20 "Very pale tawny. Lustrous tiger colour. Looking at it, you wouldn’t necessarily realise this had been a red wine in its youth. Delicate and beautifully balanced to a hint of rancio but of great age and elegance. Masses of sweetness on the front palate. (...) Great freshness and lift. So clean! No hint of decay. (...) A really lovely wine. Thoroughly satisfying and not at all a knock-out drop."
Richard Mayson : "Pale amber / orange tawny; orange peel and marmalade on the nose, very mellow but still wonderfully fresh and delicate in style; sweeter (..), delicate but not fragile, mellifluous, long, gentle and suave. Great poise. Outstanding for a 30 year old."
