Purple red in color. Red fruit, clove notes in nose. Cranberry cherry strawberry and black currant notes in mouth. Some seed tannin bitterness, ever so slightly tart, no astringency. Time to drink this one

Dense purple red in color. Leather, briar and vegetal notes in nose. Blueberry water, fruit leather and cola notes in mouth and raspberry and cranberry with length in finish. Some bitterness with mouth-coating astringency on front half of tongue. Needs time to open, still has aging potential
