ITEM 8072196 - Removed from a subterranean, temperature and humidity controlled residential cellar; Purchased at retail
Exhibits a La Mission Haut-Brion-like bouquet of blueberries, scorched earth, burning embers and spring flowers, a dense, opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a staggeringly long, multidimensional, 60-second finish.
Raspberry jam wild flowers, menthol, licorice, dried herbs and smoke are all laced together in the glass. A dollop of Petit Verdot adds darkness, but at the end of the day, Dr. Crane can't be denied.
Powerfully built, dense and chewy, yet with a measure of finesse and refinement that gives the blackberry, licorice and cedary flavors a pleasant lift, offering dried herb, mocha and loamy earth accents.
