Thursday, October 3, 2013 - Nose: This is a bit tight at first, but reveals a dark red fruit core with cedar, pencil lead, dark red cherries, cranberries, black currants, and some leather.
Taste: Medium/full bodied with medium acidity and chewy tannins. The tannins are really showing themselves along with cedar, dark red cherries, black currants and leather.
Overall: There is a lot of time left in this. It can easily use another 5-8 years as it doesn't feel like it has developed too much.
