Cherry/strawberry/raspberry with earth, dust and a hint of rose petals on the nose . Silky-smooth, seamless and nicely balanced with a light to medium body. Nice kick of acidity/grip on the finish. Just a bit thin and lightweight on the mid-palate, but otherwise very nice. This needs some airtime for sure - starts tight with muted fruit, and then blossoms.
I hope this bottle (375ml) was flawed as it was simply terrible. Nose was OK, but then thin, green and tart on the palate -- not much fruit and almost undrinkable. Gave it an hour + to improve, but it made no difference. I am a big fan of St. Innocent, but this did not come close to what I have come to expect.
