Savory but with dense black fruit, mushroom and potting soil and laced with cocoa and mocha. Warm baking spice and sun tan lotion when the bottle first pops from small new oak. Drinking beautifully now.

A stellar pull from @Dan Fitzgerald ! It has so much going on and it’s all harmonious. Dark chocolate drizzled raspberries and black cherries, smoked brisket and bacon fat and just a touch of funk. It was dense all the way through but had plenty of acidity to keep it from being flabby. Savory and mineral driven towards the finish. This has plenty of life but is in a wonderful drinking window.
