Monday, December 30, 2013 - Plenty of raspberry, wild berry, and plum fruit. As it works its way across the palate it transitions to nice smokiness and earthiness tones, with light tannins on the finish. Good ruby color and mouth feel. Should decanter this next time and see if it develops more complexity. Even if not, it's drinking quite well as a pop-and-pour.
10/27/2014. Not quite as much of a fan this time. A little thin in the mouth, and the smoke was a little more than I cared for. Still, good fruit and earrthiness.
