Tasting Notes

Roy Hersh critic source
2011 tasting note year

Upon first whiff, the spirituous nature emerges prominently, followed by a swirling array of floral scents, spicy briar patch, pine, grenadine and tar. Juicy, medium-bodied, silky smooth and sweet upon entry. Ripe black and blueberry fruit flavors crush the palate, though a bit too much spirit pokes through. Soft and juicy initially, tannins make their way to the foreground leading up to a medium-long and dry finish with tar and warming characteristic on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2025.

Score: 88/100
