Nose : Hand crushed wild blackberries. Pencil lead. Warm (not in a hot way) - caresses the nose.

Palate : whoa. Dense blackberry extract but not overdone. A hint of vanilla. Blackberry licorice. Terrific texture. Silky.

Finish is gods blackberry licorice. Long. So persistent on the palate it’s almost sticky but in a nice way.

On open a 9.4. Let’s see how it goes.

As this opens the balance and freshness become more extraordinary. This is a 9.4 today but will be much better in 5-10 years.

An hour in the fruit is much sexier and more giving. Very sexy. Luscious.
