Top Notes For
Tom Casagrande

The palate on this was rocking from the first minute in the decanter but the nose took some time to come around. Initially the nose was very balsamic and one dimensional but over the course of 90 minutes it developed scents of forest floor, dusty mahogany, and macerated cherry. Palate is amazing, with intense, sweet dark cherry fruit, moist humus, savory minerals, and old barrel notes. Great concentration counterbalanced with softness of texture and decent acids. Great length and purity. Superb.
