W70: dark dark red, 60% opaque. Dusty second wine of the night to which I had applied that adjective with strawberry and good length. The ending was dry and long.

Deep red, appearing to be in early maturity. Modest nose, slightly hot. Silky entry, dominated by dusty blackcurrant. Lovely flavours in the mouth, lots of black licorice and spicy aniseed. Dry, soft tannins form an attractive undertone. Very hot aftertaste. Long finish that is a combination of red grapes and dark licorice. Surprisingly youthful. 86/100.
