Colour opaque purple with a violet rim, clearly still youthful
Nose very meaty and gamey.
Palate is very forward and quite sexy. Hugely approachable, making me a tad suspicious. I’m not sure if it will have the staying power of the ’55 or even the ’70. But a lovely drop nonetheless. Sometimes you need a porno wine.
