Tasting Notes

A reserved and borderline grumpy nose only grudgingly reveals its aromas of notably ripe dark berries, warm earth and discreet wood nuances. There is excellent richness and concentration to the full-bodied and succulent flavors that brim with dry extract while delivering excellent length on the balanced and less youthfully austere finish than usual. With those accolades duly noted, this isn't especially complex today but the underlying material is sufficiently promising that my rating offers the benefit of the doubt that more depth will almost certainly develop over time.
