Slightly cloudy, moderately extracted red. Red fruit notes in nose. Cherry-berry flavor with length, veg, tobacco flavors initially, tart, moderate to heavy amounts of fine-grain tannin astringency in finish. Slightly hot, bitter aftertaste. Decant, have patience. Cherry and raspberry flavors with length develop, tannins soften, acids mellow; plum aftertaste. This one is a pleasure after being open 24 hours, if you like good tasting uncomplicated fruit.

The back of the bottle says "A Sunday Afternoon" so I'm just following instructions. High toned, with ripe berry, orange peel, tea leaf, chalk, and a mix of herbs.
