S55, red, 60% opaque. Early-palate strawberries, slightly dry mid-palate. Not at all heavy.

60% opaque; a lovely mature red colour. Soft and gentle essence of concentrated mandarin orange on the nose. Very pleasing. Intensely flavoured entry; full of fruit and still some dry tannins. Big and burly. Dry fruity aftertaste, that gives way to a long dried cherry finish that also shows tannins. 91/100.
