Nose has recently crushed granite, grilled/warmed black cherry, dried citrus, (minor) moist cedar sawdust, licorice, red Twizzlers© candy and white pepper.

Palate has ripe cherry, dried cherry, fresh orange zest, dark chocolate shavings, dried blueberries, all very round and complete on the palate. Medium-short finish. Definite improvement with additional age!

About two years since our last bottle, doing quite well this evening, can hold another 4-6Y (2024-26) in proper storage.

Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion into the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again.

Nose of wet granite and dusty black cherry. Palate is interesting, cherry with orange zest, mocha lingers.
