Tasting Notes

Initially there is a whiff of reduction present though it quickly blows off to reveal ripe if brooding and wonderfully complex aromas of black cherry fruit and warm earth undertones. The rich, full and powerful broad-shouldered flavors also possess outstanding concentration where the dry extract completely saturates the palate on the long and dusty finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This is really quite refined as once again the relatively fine-grained tannins contribute significantly toward the sleek mouthfeel. Once again, like its stable mate, this should be capable of aging for a very long time.
