The cork was moist almost all the way through, fell completely apart when opened.
Colour is light red with brown notes to it.
Spiced dried fruits in the aroma with a slightly dominant alcohol.
Soft taste, low tannin, warmth spreads, long after taste of dried fruit.
I let it decant for 2 hours before it was returned to the bottle for serving later at a family dinner.
8 hours after decanting
Alcohol is less dominant in the aroma and the taste have come more together. There is a good and delicious play between tannin, warmth and the sweet fruit.
2 days after decanting
Velvet soft drinking experience as tannin goes smooth hand in hand with a spiced flavour of dried fruits and in the after taste I feel the taste of eating red grapes or the faint smell of a old oak cask.
This 48 year old wine really develops through the 48 hours I had it opened. A few good evenings with a few glasses at day one and two after decanting was really a pleasure.
Overall rating 93 / 100
