The better of the bunch. At 7 years old it developed the best so far and held its structure. I’ve come to find Byron drinks better in the near term. Nose of cherry, cinnamon, a touch of clove, and tree bark. This one still may have life left...the tannins hit the outside rim of the tongue and acidity coats the entire top, rushing down the sides. It drinks light to medium and was nice with a slight chill. The palate hits with cinnamon, clove and cherry again. There’s a little dry earth, crimini mushroom element that pops up in the finish. Tasty stuff.
