Infanticide, but exceptional. I'll drink my others in 25 years!

Young and acting like a tight ass. Air helps, but more so does time in cellar.

Very jammy smell...strawberry, light vanilla and subtle earthiness. Finish is clean, no lingering aftertaste.

Deep ruby core, hint of garnet on the rim. Deep, concentrated aromas of black cherry, steamed rice(?), hint of oxidized cherry. Med b, med p acid, med p tannin, med p intensity. Soft texture, still dominant bitterness of leather but it have hint of dried cherry note. More fruitier, smoother than 2010.
