Palate: Obvious Baily-A characters of fresh red cherry, sour red berry sauce, sour plum, Japanese apricot jam, pink candies and rich lemon tea. In addition, there were spicy characters of green pepper, and Japanese mustard, and oak flavours reminiscent of “ama-natto”. The attack was refreshing with plenty of acidity. The acid was well integrated with the red fruit at the front of the mouth. Mid palate showed a balance of delicious acidity integrated with tannin, transiting to richly flavoured body, imparting a sense of stability and peace. Well-delineated acid structure, elegant red berry on the mid-palate, umami at the back, all well-wrapped and integrated, displaying an overall gentle style.
