QH85. Red, 50% opaque. Nose is of milk chocolate. Cadbury’s flake at that. Lots of milk chocolate. JES said ‟cheap chocolate”. The chocolate also appeared in the taste, mid-to-light weight, late palate finding honey runny honey. RM thought ‟a bit cooked”.

Mid red, with a hint of orange in the colour; 80% opaque. Modest oranges on the nose, and a swirl releases some bottle stink. Blood oranges on the palate and dry tannins that hold the cheeks; a touch of birch-sap bitterness on the mid-palate that fades to leave modest fruit. Dry cheeks and teeth on the lingering finish of raisins and birch-wood. 84/100.
