Orange-pink wine. This is not young. in the mouth, my note says 'Figs! Figs! Figs!'. We can assume a somewhat figgy quality. Lovely stuff actually. I guessed NN '67.

20% opacity, copper, some pinkness. Wonderful nose, leather, candy, oranges, strawberries. Very mature, extracted orange fruit, leather and cedar. Dryness in the finish with some bitterness. I guessed S60. Dryness should have tipped me off to Dow...
