After coating the walls of my glass, I watched- mesmerized by the long, evenly spaced, oily legs slowly meander down the glass. The aromatics began their run with heavy oak notes at first and then hurdling into cherry Italian syrup with just a hint of vanilla waiting at the finish. Sipping this was way too easy. A sweet note sprinted forward first, quickly passing the baton to a cherry cough drop (in a good way), and a hint of brown sugar balanced the slightly medicinal quality of the cherry. The finish left nothing to hide as I got a distinct lidocaine sensation and slowly came to my senses about where that faint medicinal quality was coming from. The red fruit note lingered a bit, as if I had a “Gusher’s” gummy stuck in the recesses of my molars, giving a bit more dimension at the end.
