The depth of colour, a slightly dull garnet, is amazing for a 30 year old wine. Another bottle a few months ago, although from the same case, was not as good, having a slight touch of funkiness, but at this age, bottle variation is inevitable.
This one was superb, classic cigar box on the nose, fruit now beginning to dry out, with savoury notes on the finish.
