Tasting Notes

♥ DON'T MISS - BURGHOUND | Deep ruby color. Even at 14 years of age this remains quite reserved with its brooding and still mostly primary aromas of black cherry and violets that are nuanced by hints of spice, menthol and warm earth. There is impressive scale to the big, powerful and well-muscled flavors that are underpinned by excellent mid-palate concentration and dense but fine tannins, all wrapped in a dazzling long, dusty and cool finish that is perfectly balanced. This will clearly require time to completely unfold but there is so much palate-coating dry extract that this is one of those '05s that you could actually enjoy now just for the velvety mouth feel. Tasted November 2019. Allen Meadows - Burghound
