Cloudy appearance, opaque. Medicinal nose mixing antiseptic and menthol. Sweet fruit, nicely balanced on the palate. The tannins are firm and the acidity lively; the fruit nicely perfumed. A little hollow on the aftertaste but recovers on the finish with length to the fragrant red licorice. 89/100. 17-Mar-16.
