Aerated with a Vinturi and decanted for two hours. Nose of blackberry, blueberry, milk chocolate, white pepper and baking spice. A soft, smooth black fruit core integrated with cocoa, spice and soft tannins on the palate. Leads to a long finish. Full bodied with a dense texture. Paired with corned beef and cabbage.
Big monster of a wine. Yet nicely balanced. But takes it right to the edge. Inky is definitely an accurate descriptor in every way. Thick mouthfeel, dark ripe fruit. Gamy. Etoh only 14.5%. Though it didn't taste hot, seemed a tiny touch heavy.
