Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - a stunning auburn. It would’ve been a 5 had the head not disappeared so quickly. Nose - redcurrants and cherry. Some wood spice. Taste - more wood and red fruit. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a dry tangy finish. Overall - interesting and enjoyable.
