Served blind. Pretty impressive in the sense that its age was so well hidden underneath a pure blanket of reddish berries. Still aromatic. Wood is nicely integrated. Did lack some personality, though.

Orange rind approach off substantial tannin. Great balance with black truffle finish.

Smokey, earthy and some hints of fruit. This seems to be slightly shy at the moment and needs a lot of time in the glass. My guess is that it can probably do with more cellaring as it started to open up its dark fruit flavours with more time.
