Nose has cut fresh cherries, blackberries, dried cherries, prunes, old oak bark, black pepper and cherry concentrate.
Palate has dried cherry, dried blackberry, cloves, cured meats, bitter chocolate, vine bark and subtle/dry tannins.
Best when paired to food, ok alone. Decanted 90m, more time appreciated.
