One of the lightest in colour of the samples tasted, transparent centre ”“ crimson not violet on the rim. Warm, sweet and fruity on the nose, with a unique tone of very ripe pineapple mixed in with the fresh blueberries. Immediately very fruity in the mouth but with a strong tannic grip that dries out the cheeks and doesn’t let go. Perhaps a little more straightforward in flavour profile than some others of the vintage. The alcohol gives a big burst of heat at the start of the aftertaste, which is dominated by the tannins. 87-89.
