OH here: cherries, but cherry pie specifically, made out of those tinned cherries in syrup mid 1970’s.


#102

Yes to cherries!


#103

Cherry Bakewell is a great shout! Maybe a bit of prune in there as well?


#104

star anise maybe?


#105

Yeah, ripe cherries. Something floral as well…?


#106


Slightly different here …:rofl:


#107

Cherry bakewell


#108

I was thinking mint but you may have it there


#109

more rose hip than the flower


#110

You need to work on your music matching!


#111

Grand Designs here. When did I hit middle age?!


#112

Had some Dolcetto d’alba ( I think) from TWS last year and it was stunning. Lovely depth of colour here and the aromas I’m getting are dark red fruit like a slow cooked bramble or blackberry !


#113

My word this is good.

That’s not very specific, is it…?


#114

Nose: there’s definitely something quite herbaceous, almost medicinal, but also getting frangipane, cherry compot and a sweet raspberry note.
@hughcummin, I was supposed to be at his gig tonight so am drowning my sorrows :wink:


#115

My one worder was clean! Even less helpful


#116

I’m loving the cherries vibe, and definitely getting star anise @szaki1974! Maybe a slight hint of pot pourri - kind of lavender-esque?


#117

I just said exactly the same - you beat me to it!


#118

I know it hasn’t seen any oak, but I’m getting a hint of cedar


#119

Yes to lavender! And some kind of baking spice.


#120

Absolutely getting lavender… maybe that’s the herbaceous note I was picking up.
