4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Cotteridge Wines. Been in the cellar for 18 months. Shared with the missus on our 15th Wedding Anniversary. Clear, dark brown. Thinnest halo of tan head. The beer equivalent of walking down the aisle to a Nick Cave tune (Into My Arms), then walking back up to James’ Millionaire. Or summat. Heady, and fruity, and beautifully smooth. Missus isn’t too fussed by it. I could drink myself silly on it.
