Tuke Holdsworth 1992 LBV: dark red, quite opaque. A bitter something on the nose, not unusual for LBV, slightly offputting. To taste very soft, surprisingly so, and very sweet. A guest is overwhelmed by cherries, but to my taste the dominant fruit was oddly given the sweetness cranberry.

Entirely drinkable.
