Dark shaded ruby; this is just the sort of colour I would expect from a 1970 red bordeaux. Light, very Cabernet nose. If I were given this blind I would be extremely tempted to head straight for bordeaux, though it would have to be a comely château such as Palmer perhaps, and a fairly ripe vintage. Perhaps 1961?! But then there is probably more sweetness and a bit more exoticism than one would find in a bordeaux of this evident age... Mouth-filling and again that note of violets, candied this time. A little dusting of tannins on the end. Lovely wine.
