40% opacity, red-brown. Sweetness to start, then heat and a dry finish. Strawberry is there but not much.

Cherry red colour with a mature edge, 40% opaque. Limited on the nose with a bit of cherry. Even patience and more time in the glass doesn’t really add to the bouquet. Modest fruit on entry, sweet and pleasant but lacking complexity. This comes with a decent balance from the ripe acidity. Fruit led aftertaste, a touch of heat on the finish then a good, fruit driven length and a lovely finish. 88/100.
