Another vintage of yawn. Great nose but a short finish, black fruit, lots of green pepper and black tea. The alcohol is a little out of balance too. If it were $20 it would be fine. But it's not.

Needs long lead time in decanter to open up. Once open, great dark fruit flavored with a note of cocoa on the long finish.

Very enjoyable! Haven't had this in a while and it was quite nice.

Baby Quintessa. Tastes like I'm sucking on a blackberry. Faust is almost always a good value at $50 or so.

Super duper extracted. Mighty extracted. Syrupy fruit and viscous mouthfeel. Slight bell pepper and substantial serving of black fruit. Serious hang time...
