TASTING NOTE: Baked black-cherry and plum aromas meet with star anise, hot gingerbread and wet slate on the fairly opulent, very delicious nose of this bottling. It's more tightly wound on the palate, where cherry and black raspberry are lifted by baking spice. It's the pitch perfect acidity and tannic edge that are most impressive.
