3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Very dark red copper body with a nice beige head. Fruity aroma with prunes and cherries. Sweet and mildly caramelly taste with prunes and dates. Not a big fruit cake but subtle and smooth. Finish has some vinous cherries or port but itís always very delicate, never gets cloying. Whatís not to like (apart from the clear glass bottle, of course)?
