Previously available for $35.00
16 months plus in barrique,50% new Lots of wood on the nose, sweet and toasty with spicy notes concealing but not totally covering the core of black cherry skin, black plum fruit. This is silky, elegant and savory in the mouth, with spicy wood up from the superb tense fruit with great minerality and clarity on the backend. The wood tannins are well integrated, and this is very refined on the palate with a finish that is a bit short, but shows finesse, I want to like this less than I do but this is superb. 93pts
