Inviting aroma of darker fruits, cedar and a touch of smoke. Rounded palate of sweet red fruits and baking spices. Medium-Light body with silken mouth feel. Some acidity remains. Would drink over the next 1-3yrs.
At this age, the oak and the alcohol are already ganging up on me. Quite spicy, some fruit (cherry, raspberry) that I think would have been better a year or two ago. On the 4th day under argon, some brett surprisingly appeared, which I think raised it one point.
