The_Osprey (3053) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle share at Leighton’s, thanks to Paul. Four years old at this stage. Murky dirty brown, very little head, no lacing. Aroma is strawberry jam, some harsh chemical / alcohol, touch of sherry, grape juice. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is sherry, sweet toffee, some alcohol coming through, no real bitterness. Doesn’t have the aggressive woodiness that I like in the new vintages, and has gone a bit ’gloopy’ with age. Still, a nice sipper.

Bottle @ home. Clear ruby red color, thick off-white to beige head. Smell some sweetness, slightly woodish and indeed winey. Taste winey, also sweetness and soft, velvety. Very soft carbonation, a bit thin texture. Low to medium body.
