20% opacity red-brown. Dried fruit and leather on the nose. Soft, smooth smoky entry. Dried fruit, cherries. Nice balance. Gets a point from me.

Copper-red colour, 30% opaque. Not much on the nose, a little rose-hip syrup, nice and fresh. Fresh and balanced fruit on entry. Soft tannins support the mid-palate. The late palate fruit is powerful; the aftertaste is great, full of Starburst fruit sweets with lingering tannins. A fine, slightly sticky, spiced fruit finish. 90
