Magnolia and Azalea
I do have a Magnolia in the garden and it had a huge blossom about a month ago. But this was not one of the bushes I was referring to. And not Azalea either.

30% opacity, ruby red with a copper rim. Dusty strawberries on the nose. Gentle heat all along the palate, dusty strawberries again with some bitter mocha in the finish. Lip licking great port.

Re: 1967 Taylor Vargellas

30% opacity, lovely copper-amber red. Nose of strawberry and cranberry. Quite light in the mouth, and some fiery heat. Cranberries. Lovely long sweet aftertaste with some bitterness also and some spiciness.
