Dark, almost black. Decanted 20 minutes and let develop in the glass. Nose of espresso, licorice, tar, blueberries in that order. A bit hot, but good mid and long finish that ends with just enough acidity.
Decanted 45 minutes. Strong coconut and eucalyptus oil moving to menthol on the nose, blackberry liqueur, black licorice, and dark chocolate on the nose. Heavily oaked, coconut and eucalyptus, shortbread, prune, lots of thick black fruits. Not the most complex wine, but well done for the style.
Best wine of the evening, appropriately called The Bishop. Immediate burst of coconut to the nose, along with strong oak; odd but enjoyable mix. ... Buttery to the taste, with some buttercream and licorice. Overall fruit but hard to detect specifics. ... Subsequent nose opened the nasal passages but with pleasant menthol. Recommend.
