Despite not very good harvest conditions, Aurus is still generous in 2008. Smells lush and dense, with boysenberry, creamy oak, rubber and charred aromas. Layered and tannic feeling, with blackberry, chocolate and dark spice flavors. Toasty and like digging into a fudge cake on the finish, with a deep feel and clarity. Drink now through 2018.
