Rose red colour, 40% opaque. A lovely nose of sweet rose perfume that is gentle and delicate. The sweet fruit shows on entry, full of soft spices. Sweet fattened raisins dominate the early and mid-palate and air released more fragrance. There is some heat on the finish, which is full of the gentle raisins reminding me of Canadian Raisin pie. This is sweet and gentle. 89/100. Decanted 3½ hours.
