40% opacity, warm red-orange, very slightly cloudy. Nose of bubblegum and cherries. Good weight, slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Very gentle heat mid to end of palate. Mature dusty dried cherries. I guessed G70.

SW70 = “IDJ”: red-red-pink, 40% opaque. Dry and mature. Slightly mocha-esque bitter mid-palate. Very dry. Another lovely bottle.

The mocha bitterness suggested GC. It always does; it never is; I don’t learn.
