1983 Smith Woodhouse

Post by winesecretary »

Still 80% opaque reddish-purple. Still looks twenty years younger than it is.

Given enough air (24 hours) a herbaceous nose with some dark fruits behind.

Black cherries on the front and mid palate, a pleasing prune and chocolate complexity on the finish.

Finally coming in to its own?

Consumed over 9,10,11,& 12 April 2022; and best on 11 &12. No hurry here.
