On one hand the nose comes across burnt and stalky, while on the other hand it's toasted, smoky and racy, with pent up intensity. Overall, it's medium in size and density, with a blend of herb, licorice, pepper and red fruit flavors. Oaky, spicy and a touch hot on the finish, and it's bright and juicy throughout.
