ITEM 8249167 - Removed from a temperature and humidity controlled wine storage unit; Purchased upon release
Dark, rich and massive, with gobs of flavor built around ripe, vibrant currant, blackberry and wild berry fruit, layers of exotic, spicy oak nuances and some rather big, ripe tannins as well. Long, luxurious aftertaste.
An inky/blue/purple color as well as a fabulous perfume of graphite, creme de cassis, smoke, and licorice. It hits the palate with a full-bodied, unctuous texture, tremendous purity, and moderately high tannin in the 40+ second finish.
Very deep, vibrant aromas of cassis, minerals, tobacco, fresh herbs, licorice and tar.
