Mz60. red, 30% opaque. Varnish on nose, and on palate, which was unremarkably mid- to light-weight.

Mid walnut colour, about 20% still. Nose of clove drops or clove oil. Big, figgy fruit in the mouth, with acid and fire in the end. Lovely.

Burnished gold colour, 10% opaque. Gentle nose of fragrant Turkish delight and mandarin juice. Later the nose also showed some of the characteristic caramel mixed in with the mandarin. Medium to light bodied, evolved but fragrant on the palate. Sweet and floral but slightly lacking in acidity to give balance. Floral finish, elegant and delightful but too sweet for my taste. 88/100.
