Aged beautifully with dried herb, balsamic, smokiness and leather on the nose. Very smooth on the palate. Dusty tannins. Savory deliciousness.

Cherry cough syrup. Had a floral thing going on on the pop and pour. More tobacco and roasted meats after a little over an hour. Tannins mostly integrated. After three hours, cigar box on the nose. Sweet and round on the entry. Long finish.

Opened up early for decanting and couldn't resist an initial sampling. Wow! It is silky smooth and has maintained a very nice tannin structure. Was initially concerned it might have laid too long but feel I timed it just right!
