40% opacity, dark red, slightly cloudy. Smooth, only very gentle heat late palate, just beyond midweight. Dusty dried strawberries and cherries. Very slight bitterness on the finish.

Mature red colour, around 40% opaque. Sweet fruit shows on the nose, delicately fragranced. Sweet and satin texture on entry with gentle flavours showing elegantly on the early palate. Dry elements to the fruit on the late palate, quite "pale" in flavours without much body. Delicate and dry until a licorice intensity comes through on the late palate. Intensely concentrated finish of huge length that is a complete contrast to the weak palate. 88/100. Decanted 3 hours.

N70. Dark red, 40% opaque. Full and big and soft and excellent, with a little grit.
