Runner up in our 1/2/16 Altaire blind tasting. But at the end of the night it opened up so beautifully, it seemed to beat the Prisoner. Re-Tasting 6/9/16: rating affirmed. Smooth, well balanced.

Aromas of licorice, leather and black cherries. Flavors of plum, dark fruit and heavy oak.

It is very tasty. We had a glass before we went to OAK for dinner in Gainesville and it was a great start to the night. Definitely taste the cherry.
