- Harwood Arms with Mike Deer wrapped in bacon
- Ruby red and medium bodied. Nose of red fruits, graphite, crushed stone. Taste kinda light, with soft tannins, dry. Similar note on palate, cassis liqueur, graphite and smoke, short on structure and blurry taste. Short finish. Seems lacking a clear identity. Finally opened after 1.5 hour in the decanter, mineral nose with spice, currants. Softer tannin, still dry though.
- Boxing Day dinner
- 5 bottles
- No compromise.
