Nose has ripe plum, milk chocolate powder, ripe blackberry, ripe black cherry, green pepper in muddy garden soil, decaying roses and over-ripe red cherries.

Palate has milk chocolate covered cherry, wet leather, warmed black licorice, charred wood, ripe plum, grippy tannins and a very long finish. Started out a little hot (14.5% ABV) after a 4 hour decant, but settled in nicely afterwards.

Last bottle of the 2009 vintage from a 6-pack purchased in Nov 2012. Anyone continuing to hold this in proper storage, may do do until 2025-30.

Ripe plum skin, over ripe cherry on the palate. Nose is overly hot right now, so difficult to really pin down it's attributes.
