Lovely, sweet red cherries, enjoyable. Only just pipped for my 3rd place by the Constantino, and 4th overall for the group also.

40% opacity, mature red. Dusty cherries on the nose. Rich mouthfeel, gentle heat along the palate, cherries, mature and dusty, long finish. Good stuff.

G63: glorious red, 50% opaque. Dark fruits; smoke; huge sweetness. Some disputed whether there was TCA — to which I am not sensitive.
