ITEM 8296656 - Removed from a temperature and humidity controlled wine storage unit; Purchased at retail
Beautiful currant, berry and licorice aromas follow through to a full body, with tar and berry character, fine tannins and a long finish. I was expecting a little more from this, but it's still outstanding.
Very ripe, musky aromas of black plum, currant, menthol, dark chocolate, mocha and meat...
Fresh sweet spice. Even something a little floral. Rich and dense but surprisingly velvety even though it is firm. Rounded but there's real strength, too. Surprisingly approachable though a long way to go. Pretty luscious and long.
