dark red colour, this bts colour was a bit unclear not to say muddy, very herbal on the nose, touch of smell of gravy. Also definitely closed but this bt was in a bad phase and probably a faulty bt

Opaque; deep red with a hint of rose on the rim. Very sharp on the nose, full of lime and maple syrup - perhaps a touch of bottle stink remaining. Medium texture; dry tannins dominate the initial palate. Plenty of work releases some stewed red fruit and more maple syrup. Long, long aniseed aftertaste that is just great, but leaves dried out cheeks. Surprisingly lightweight on the palate, but with a fabulous finish. 87/100.

It was late. My expressive, concise, note says "Horrible."
