Tuesday, January 1, 2013 - Decanted 7 hours. Awesome nose of cocoa, roasted coffee bean/espresso, vanilla bean, black cherry and raspberry extract, smoked game; clearly heavily oaked, which is just fine given the concentration of fruit. Open on the nose, but closed on the palate--despite a round, meaty mouthfeel, the acidity is overbearing and destroys the underlying fruit flavor profile. Way too young; needs 7-10 years.
