Black opaque. Sponge-y headed with a cap of mostly smooth, cappuccino cream glossing. The beer sighs as it pours. Coffee and espresso scents entwine with vanilla, malty chocolate, basil, dark toast, grilled oak, and grilled marinated mushroom. Heavy coffee entry with burnt white sugar, toffee and dark roasted, brittle arabica, soy sauce, bitter notes from peppercorn and roasted pecans, but just enough dark caramel to sweeten it slightly, 100% dark chocolate; drops smoothly in swallow, then surfaces with bitter coffee oils on the finish always remembering its oak. I am very surprised that I have not rated this one yet, as I have had it many times. Now I can say I took a shot/stab at it and drowned the day’s sorrows in its dark robes. — 3 years ago
Great sell, sold the bottle for $500, my guest paired it with foi Gra & A5 Japanese Wagyu.
Aromas of ripe blackberries and bay leaf emerge with notes of mocha, spice and vanilla. On the palate, layers of cherry, plum and dark chocolate entwine with notes of cinnamon and spice in a long finish. Built for the long haul, the wine rewards decanting and a little time to open up. — 7 years ago
Citrus and sweet grapes entwine for a pleasing aroma. Zesty and tangy with refreshing melon and grape flavors that lingers with a hint of honey. — 5 years ago
