Dark red, liquid velvet. Aromas of black cherry, currant, raspberry, plum and pencil lead. Medium bodied. Concentrated. Cocoa, licorice, menthol and sweet oak envelope the dark fruit with decidedly dusty tannins. 15% abv! Although thoroughly enjoyable, were I to choose again, I'd wait a few more years.
Plenty of smoke, toasty oak, dark cherry and raspberry flavors with noticeable underlying greenness. Structured with some chewy tannins. Dry, dusty tannins in typical Venge style. Long dry finish. Not for the faint hearted and may be too rustic and astringent for many. This could take a few years to soften.
Drank over two days. Just as good on day 2 as it was when first poured. The aroma and flavor profile exhibit smokey aromas, and those of red currant, and chocolate. The texture is meaty with dusty tannins and a great long finish. Very dry; reflective of the Venge style.
