Blackberries, smoke, cassis, smoke, hint of white pepper and other spices, minerals and smoke. Smooth but lightly dusty tannins. Moderate finish with slight aromatic smoke. Went well with brisket.
This was drinking just beautifully last night. Aromas of cassis, plum, bitter herbs, green pepper followed by a beautifully-textured palate of plums and cassis accented by black tea. Will be even better in a few years, I think.
