Dark amber color. About a tablespoon of sediment at the bottom of the 500 ml bottle. Nose had notes of walnuts and apricot. On the palate, more walnut, apricot, and dried figs. Actually very bright flavors, 17.5% alcohol was barely noticeable. Reminded me very much of a good tawny port, without the cloying stickiness. Amazing for a nearly 60 year old wine; I now wish I had bought more than one. 95 pts.
