Chubby Appreciation: 93/100

Appearance: Bright red
Aroma: Wonderful perfume of red berries, strawberry, and refined flower
Palate: Middle weight style spicy notes and mild red fruit. Fine and smooth with round finish. Nice balance.

Pop and pour, aromatic scent released immediately. So much attraction for someone like me. Nothing much needs to be said here really. Just enjoy the beautiful nose as well as the comparable palate touches. It is gorgeous now and perhaps even better in a few years.
