RV55. Red pink, 25% opaque. Burnt plastic, very dry mid palate, some red cherry behind. The late palate is much superior, having sweet maraschino cherry.

20% opacity, red brown. Ice cream, vanilla on the nose. Soft and smooth entry, very light heat late palate, caramel and vanilla. I gave this some points, but when I returned later, it was less impressive.
