Tons of complexity, not heavy at all and very easy to drink with just a tinge of sweetness.

Post-auction fun (Birch Road Cellar, Chicago IL): Nose: The nose is flowing and perfumed with sour red cherries, herbs, spices, cranberries, leather tones, and earth tones. The fruit still has ripeness to it, though it is clearly mature while there is excellent depth and layering.

Taste: Medium bodied with medium+ acidity and medium tannins. The feel and structure are showing mature with the acidity being a little on the sharp side. The feel is refined and polished with sour red cherries, herbs, cranberries, leather, earth tones, and black tea notes.

Overall: This is just drop dead gorgeous. There can certainly be some variation on these bottles and this was an on bottle.

was slightly underwhelmed by this....a touch hollow in the midpalate, but began to gain a little weight with 20 minutes in the glass.
