Enjoyed where this was, resolved, holding onto its fruit well, transitioning into maturity. Dried black cherry, currant, flowers, leather, coffee, cigar, menthol, tar and graphite. Round and soft textured, lovely

Nicely integrated with velvety mouthfeel. More bouquet than individual aromas. Superb!
