Road tar, currants, cassis, and some higher levels of brett on this one. The palate has some really nice depth with dark fruit of blackberries and cassis, but the brett is a little too strong and somewhat overpowers the flavors. Drink now before it gets much worse.

Aromas of cassis, olive, graphite, and a hint of menthol. A pop of dark fruit on the palate with blackberry, dark cherry, cassis and a mild component of brett. Medium-heavy tannins on the finish. Peaking in probably another 5 years (2020).

Surly, dark & brooding as usual but lacking weight. Storage problem perhaps.
