Buised cherry red with an orange rim; 50% opaque. A lovely developed nose, led by fat oranges and even fatter rose hips. Sweet flowers perfume the cocktail-cherry entry, preceding a delicate and elegant palate which has great layering and development. Some heat shows on the aftertaste, then a very fine, dry but fruit-led cocktail-cherry finish of great length takes over. Nicely balanced. 90/100. Decanted 6 hours.
