    Do you still remember if the wine was rich? Full bodied? Other aspects of its constitution?

I have rechecked my notes, and the only thing I can find is that the wine was perceived as surprisingly light, and with some sweet notes towards the end. Might have been some reminiscence of blackcurrant and plum in there, but surprisingly few tertiary notes of wood, tobacco, etc.

    Much appreciated.
    Thankyou for the deepdive.
    I ended up turning down a "good deal" on a half-case.
    As you know: "Life"s too short"
    I'm very much obliged.
