Df77, dark red. Off nose. Taste far too acidic.

Slightly cloudy appearance. Unnatractive baked nose. Baked flavours on the palate. Sadly, a spoiled bottle. Not rated.

Quite a bit darker than the older Delaforces. Horrible bottle stink on the nose. In the mouth some simple sugar then problems. Another dead bottle, unfortunately.
