Split out from the 30 yr retrospective.

I highly recommend 4-6 hours of decant time before drinking as pop and pour didn't do it justice.

T+ 24

Lovely strawberry jam with anise and baking spices with some buttered orange marmalade that sneaks up on you!

Medium bodied mouthfeel that's sweet has some root spices, freshly shaved ginger that melds with freshly juiced strawberries finishing with a sweet milk chocolate coffee finish.

Very good

92.

Had at Breakers last night. No decant.
Good body, and a nice nose of berries. Good in mouth and a night finish.

Rated 90


Live simply, Laugh often, Wine a lot!!!
