Intensely perfumed and a bit unusual on the nose with a fresh leather base and gently sweet floral perfumes over a core of slightly meaty black cherry/blackberry fruit. There's a hint of smoke here and some underlying oak nuances, but they are very well integrated. This has fantastic depth of flavor with flavors that mimic the nose: rich dark berry fruits, black cherry skins, a hint of herb and some slightly creamy, lightly toasted and nutty almond ice cream, nutty oak notes in a rather aromatic package. There's an exotic pomegranate edge to the fruit in the mouth and violet pastilles on the back end. The finish shows more wood and wood spice, and the fruit shades a bit redder, but this is long and deep. Already delicious, there is notable potential for this to improve. Elegant complex and complete. 93pts
