Tasted Saturday, 21 May 2011.
Very perfumed, floral damson; glycerol, chemically tones; stewed cooked fruits, jammy. On opening, there was something weird there, almost like citrus peel, rosewater? Second day after opening, some notes of raspberry liquer; treated wood (perhaps lacquered somehow) and resin. Very interesting.
Palate soft, so much red fruits, still very lively and vibrant, acidity still there too. Everything woven together, generous and yielding, drinking well. Lingers. An excellent mature port.
