Been doing a bit of cellar sorting last few days and found the unopened box of these I’d half forgotten about. Possibly half on purpose. I don’t really drink CNDP these days. After looking at CellarTracker reviews, got into a bit of a panic that I’d left this too late and it would be a bit shit. No need to worry. This is lovely. The tannins have dissolved into the fruit which is still fresh and floral. I ain’t gonna lie, there’s some alcohol heat but it seems to work. It all seems to balance out. The nose is like a Turkish market, full of exotic cinnamon spice and dried rose petals. The alcohol prickles you’re nostril hair. The palate is like a group hug with a bunch of sweaty football fans after a last minute winner goes in. It’s fun but you’re ready for it to finish. The finish is full of violets and spice. Long.
