Review from notes

Deep mahogany with garnet hues, quite clear, whitish head that left some bubbles on the glass. Lots of sour cherry, oak, plums, and a bit of sherry as well, indicating its oxidation content. Sweet and sour in the front, presenting a cornucopia of dark fruits and berries, which relays to a farmhouse funkiness and musty slabs of wood. Finishes tart and herbal. Very delicate and a pleasure to drink.
