Thursday, December 13, 2012 - Dinner at Goosefoot (Goosefoot, Chicago IL): Nose: Very big nose with extracted tones of black fruits, black cherry compote, spices, black tar, and cedary oak tones. It's rich, but with depth and a larger quality to it.
Taste: Full bodied, but smoother than I would've imagined with tones of black cherries, oak, spices, and black fruits.
Overall: This is a full throttled wine, but there is a balance in its largeness. While the oak is prominent, it doesn't fully take over the nose or palate.
