Big and sweet and mouthfilling. Lots of dried spice character. Floral fragrance. Drier than Graham's 1985. Complete and well balanced. Masses of liquorice and subtlety. Drinking range: 2010 - 2035 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Mar 2017)

There are lots of black fruits on the nose with the richness of black plum underpinned by the slightly firmer black cherry. The mid palate is full of rich fruit supple and fleshy but behind all of the richness there is some freshness lifting the flavours and giving a slightly drier racier feel on the finish. 2011-2026 Rating: 93 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk(Dec 2013)
A fine, classic Dow nose with notes of cloves, raisin and a touch of fig. Not incredibly complex but refined and inviting. The palate is sweet and fleshy, again cloves, red-berried fruit, a touch of spice and dates towards the finish. Moderate weight, certainly not and imposing, alcoholic Dow, but refined with great elegance and refinement. Drink now-2035 Tasted September 2007.

Dark ruby-purple. Powerful aromas of raisin, blackberry and dark chocolate follow through to a full body, with medium sweetness and a firm, slightly chewy finish. Good fruit. Even nutty. Rating: 89 James Suckling, The Wine Spectator(Sep 2011)
After bottling, vigorous, plenty of 'grip'; two years later still purple, with spicy fruit lurking beneath the brandy: intense, powerful. In 1990 I noted the leanness and acidity - its vibrant nervous system. By the mid 1990s surprising sweetness, attractive fruit, elegance, soft figgy nose, good texture. Most recently I recorded a dry finish but perfect ripeness. **** Lovely now-2015Michael Broadbent MW(Mar 2005)
