Tasting Notes

Visible but reasonably well-integrated wood sets off somber, very ripe and distinctly earthy dark berry fruit liqueur aromas. There is impressive richness to the powerful broad-shouldered flavors that brim with dry extract that does an excellent job of buffering the very firm tannins on the beautifully balanced, long and quite serious finish. This is an excellent example whose only fault lies in being completely overshadowed by its '09 VV counterpart. Allen Meadows - Burghound
