A half bottle. Oxidised nose, smelling strongly of rosemary and antiseptic. The antiseptic shows strongly on the palate. Although the palate does have a nice texture the flavours emphasise the oxidised state of this half bottle. Long, dry finish. Not Rated. Drunk 24-May-17. Double decanted for 12 hours.
