Conrad Green Delectable Pro

A little bricking on the edges but the nose is very pure. Shows it’s age but not defeated at all- there’s dried cherry and some leather on the nose. The midpalate fleshes out over hours in glass. It’s lean, translucent, medium bodied but still quite pure and fine. Notes of tea, dried roses, kombucha. There’s little actual decay here- it’s showing age but aging at a glacial pace. You need to love this kind of wine but I do when they’re in this shape. Very good.

Skogsgolv, läder och en del ek, marsipan, nypon och lite tjära i doften. Något volatilt. Annars bra balans mellan syra och tanniner.

Beautifully clear. Still fresh and vivid. Wild herbs and dark fruit. Pretty cherry and clear on the palate. Almost like a well kept 60's napa cab. Very good.

Hint of bandaid on the nose, but bramble, tobacco paper, structure and balance.
