RV66. Red orange, 25% opaque. Light, hollow, not a proper ʼ66. The key adjective is for me, hollow.

25% opacity, mature red, orange rim. red fruit, cranberries. Mature port, sweetness, red fruits. Initially good structure, some flabbiness then appearing. Not as robust as would be expected of a '66.
