Cedar, licorice, delicious baked fruit. Long finish w some pepper spice on the end. Really nice balance.

The 2006 ‘Blewitt Springs’ by Clarendon Hills shows tremendous energy and verve despite being more than thirteen years of age. Brandy soaked red cherry, cigar box and bright guava puree aromatics fill the glass. Showing a seamless texture and a wonderful sense of minerality, this dazzles on the palate. Red fruits and rose water packed with mineral-driven flavors excite the senses. A long-ager, this will continue to beautifully evolve over the next decade. Drink 2019-2029- 93

Really slow to open up. When it did, gorgeous raspberry and smoky leather. Some herbal notes of rosemary(?) too.
