Roasted, black-fruit aromas are tight and focused. In the mouth, this is tannic and concentrated, with each pass revealing another layer of grip and bite. Flavors of smoky black cherry and blackberry finish long, jagged and spicy, with length and power. Give this a few more years and it might become more subtle and complex; now it's quite fierce.
