ITEM 8093496 - Removed from a subterranean, temperature and humidity controlled residential cellar
A rich yet refined red. Super-plummy on the nose, with hints of fresh spices. Full-bodied and wonderfully polished, with beautiful tannins and lots of fruit and spices.
...enticing medley of aromas includes sweet pipe tobacco, anise, white pepper and mint. Ripe plum and pure cherry flavors are enveloped by mouthcoating gauzy tannins, with a note of licorice adding complexity to the substantial finish.
...Fully ripe fruit and very winning. Good balance. Bonfires? Not excessive impact. Great spread of flavours...For the long term.
