    Intensely sweet, but backed up with enough complexity and a certain amount of sharpness/acidity so that it does not all fall apart. Nose and taste both strongly dominated by candied apricots. Superb with roquefort cheese!

    Nose and taste both initially dominated by cranberries and mulberries, with mulberries gradually dominating. Nose with a hint of forest floor and a touch of minerality. Chewy, subtle tannins and some liquorice notes. Very dark and inky blue-black in colour. Empty glass smelt of earth and tobacco.
