This is a ripe oaky specimen with smoky aromas of hickory along with licorice, pencil lead and jammy blackberry. In the mouth, it's huge and spreads out like a blanket. Flavors of baked black fruits are fully ripe, while oak-driven toasty, blackened, chocolaty flavors push the finish. Drink through 2018.
