Ripe blackberry, plum and black cherry with nuances of black pepper and licorice. Ripe and just a little lopsided favoring fruit over structure. Moderate ABV, long finish.

Blackberry, black cherry, raspberry preserves, dark chocolate, vanilla, mossy earth and oak. Excellent structure and big, chewy tannins.

Made in the modern style, substantially more elegant and refined compared to the blockbuster counterparts. Wonderful purity.

Strongly recommend a good decant 2hrs at least. Tightly wound around significant tannins. Would've liked to see it after some time open.
