Had this while cooking, then consuming a meal built around a cedar plank wild sockeye salmon. Yum, yum - dark cherries, a hint of blueberries, and a bit of the earthy/smoky stuff I love, all well in balance. Just a touch of heat on the back end, but not distracting or degrading. Would love to have more of this.
I'll hold off on assigning a score yet - the first glass just really isn't doing much. In it's defense, it could well be bottle shock, as it just arrived in a "mystery box" today. Will let it sit for a day or two, and update if warranted. Or hope for better on the next bottle based on all the great reviews it's warranted thus far.
Nice plum and dark cherry on a medium frame and weight. Great aromatics that come through and entice the drinker. Nice blue fruit on the palate with some earth and emerging spice, predominately pepper, and a hint of licorice on a nice finish. Very nice.
