Weak and hazy to the eye, with a slightly stewy "old-wine" character. But it's only from 2002, so it's not exactly ancient. So why the color? Maybe it's already on its way to full maturity, and if that's the case that means the vegetal notes that are currently dominating the fading fruit are here to stay.
