(2001) Colour assessment is difficult in Raeburn’s 16th Century cellars. This was bottled in late September 2001, and has a beautifully limpid nose that is honeyed and rich with notes of vanilla, nuts, little floral aromatics and hints of fig. The richly-textured palate has fine but bold fruit. It is very punchy, with gripping acidity and powering concentration into a long finish. A baby, but very good indeed/excellent.
