Dark red with brown notes in the colour
Has a heavy swing to it already, leaves heavy curtains on the sides of the glass
Deep dark fruit with a spiced side in the aroma. Well performing right after opening the bottle.
Warm alcohol, full bodied taste with a dark side to it, though on the weak side. Slight notes of dried fruits with short after taste.

The alcohol has become more dominant in the aroma and there is no change to the taste.

Enhanced on the sweet notes, much more open, alcohol is less warm. A specific raisin taste has come forward.
Tannin’s are still well alive and gives a good play.

Red as blood.
Still some alcohol in the aroma but certainly with a much more spicy and mysterious darkness about it.
Still bite from the tannin, warmth from the alcohol and a good full bodied taste.
Clear taste of dried fruits in taste and after taste.
Overall rating 90 / 100
