A mild whiff of reduction slightly mutes the appeal of the otherwise pretty red berry, briar and soft spice scents. I very much like the mouth feel of the delicious, energetic and well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that also flash good power on the balanced, complex and ever-so-slightly rustic finish. This is certainly good and offers plenty of character but I would not describe it as refined. Note that this too definitely needs at least a few years of cellaring.
Deep red. Fresh, smoke- and spice-tinged blackberry, cherry, mocha and cola scents show very good clarity and lift. Silky, open-knit and appealingly sweet, offering juicy red and dark berry and spicecake flavors that put on weight with aeration. Displays impressive clarity and spicy thrust on the long, energetic finish, which features harmonious tannins and a sweet vanilla flourish. (JR)
