SW85: red-pink, 30% opaque. Nosing to me of maraschino cherry, though IEPA correctly noted acetone. To taste lots of candy, heat mid-palate. Simple, sweet, but most pleasant. Could be drunk with some enjoyment.

Looked wrong - too much brown and too much loss of opacity at this age. One dimensional to taste - pleasant, but nt what VP should be. Possibly damaged.
