Just concluded the annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.

Reddish-brown, translucent; mid-shoulder fill for this particular bottle, saturated cork but solid without any deterioration. Enjoyed in our Gabriel Glas's.
Nose has wet earth, forest moss, dehydrated black cherry, molasses cookie, cherry compote, over-ripe strawberry, wet wood, cherry syrup reduction and mahogany shavings.
Palate has dried cherry, dried strawberry, (minor) metallic minerals, dry soil, medium tannins on the long finish. Anyone still holding this should consider enjoying this in the near term (2020-2024), when held in proper storage.

Tremendous evolvement over a few hours. Sexy Leroy with terrific evolution of attributes. Damp earth, dried red fruits, hibiscus flowers, Asian spices, and seamless integration of fruit and earth. Impeccably long and lingering finish leaving you longing for more.

Drinks like an off bottle and lacking fruit and structure. Consistent over six hours.
