S70, 50% opaque, red. To taste medium-weight, red and purple fruit, goof fruit length.

60% opaque; deep orange colour, with a red core. Strawberries and wet leaves on the nose. Smooth textured entry, beautiful balance; elegant sweet fruit and with tannins that are fully resolved; great development on the palate. A big aftertaste and a huge finish full of sour cherry and dry cherry stones. Probably at its peak and certainly drinking beautifully. 90/100.
