12.8 % ABV. Tasted over a couple days. Semi translucent dark garnet in the glass. Earthy on the nose with reticent black cherry. Medium bodied with some firm tannins taking center stage over fruit. Not much changed after two days in the cellar. Not sure where this is headed. Decidedly Burgundian in style.
A bit more reticent than a bottle of seven months ago, even after several hours in the deecanter. On the nose, stewed cherry, with loads of baking spice and notes of hard candy and underbrush. Palate offers a mix of red and black (cherry and black cherry), with more baking spice and nice spine of mineral and tannin. Very solid bottle, but I'd like more for the price.
