Rich and luscious, jammy with hints of blueberry, cinnamon and chocolate.

A nice bottle just had some old barrel funk that was a little bit of a turn off.

Rare meat, dusty herbs, bacon, baking spice (clove), blackest fruit, nut, black currant, chocolate. Wildly too young. (sample)

Intense black fruit with chocolate overtones. 2004 vintage is the peak of aging perfection.

Deep brooding spicy autumnal party delight. Was not expecting this. Bat wing cellared cumin infused rubber asparagus fire. That's the whole enchilada. With a smidge of dark cocoa/maple infusion. If you want real deal Holyfield - take a breath...then buy this wine.
