Re: 1940 Souza Guedes colheita

60% opaque with a caramel nose...quite a harsh entry and quite acidic...not entirely pleasant but finish was smooth with a hint of mint and varnish which mellowed in time.

I won’t be early. Are any of those likely to be punctual able to print the placemats ? (Current version, as near top of log page, is 11:45 Sun 31 Dec 2017; force-reload until that appears.
