Decanted 2 hours. Very little sediment. Very deeply colored right to the rim. Deep and smoky nose is loaded with black fruit, pan roasted spices and cola. Firm and structured on the palate with black cherry jam, plum and licorice flavors that are framed by clean, fresh acidity. Solid and firm, this is very much a 2005 and will continue to develop over the next several years. Now through 2019.
Has held up well over the years. On it's downward spiral but still had some fruit left which isn't saying much for the Sineann bombs. I'm still a fan of these young for a hedonistic fruit explosion. Once in a while they are appreciated. Makes me wish I drank the case in the first few years but it's always fun to save one bottle for exploring.
Decanted 2 hours. Chunky sediment. Deep crimson right to the thin clear rim. Heady dark fruit and smoky herb nose. Quite viscous and rich with deep, layered flavors of black cherry pie, spiced plum and a bit of dark chocolate. Rich and full-bodied with good acidity and some ripe tannins, this is very long and luscious. Exceptional! Now through 2017.
