Drop dead gorgeous / a balance of dried and juicy red fruit with pronounced dill and blonde tobacco / nicely integrated oak, elegant structure

Excellent! Opened up very nicely from a decanter. Cigar and smoke were very present as was aged oak. Dark fruit was abound. I really liked this.

Deep ruby center , light medium wide ruby rim. Quite rounded, sweet blackberry , cherry and plum. There is also a steely mineral note. Touch of vanilla. Plum and blackberry notes in the mouth, quite elegant and refined . There is nice ripeness to the fruit and very good balance and length. That mineral touch returns on the finish. Very nice and complete, will surely age very well though it is accessible now. Tannin is present but sweet , refreshing acidity. Coming back to the glass there is a black pepper note that comes through. The acidity and tannin now seem more marked.
