Dark and sweet smelling, with mocha, tobacco, briar and a whiff of dried hard cheese. The palate has a rich feel to it and good framing from healthy acidity and tannins, while the flavors of black fruit and berries are bright and forward. Round, chewy, warm and ready to run. Best if held for another year or so.
