Nose of black cherry, forest berries, cranberry, vanilla, a touch of raisin. On the palate it has sweet, rich black cherry/cranberry fruit, with a touch of prune juice, giving it a craisin juice vibe. Very primary and fruit oriented, lacking any floral or herbal notes. I'm left with impression of some RS, almost like sforzato. A nice rich fruity drink, but surprisingly unstructured, with low if reasonable acidity for the vintage. I can't see this having the structure to age more than a few years, and indeed on day two this is all cherry liquor and alcohol, really hot and unpleasant.
