    May 19, 2021 - Nose is barnyard cherry, oiled leather. Initially a bit tight and slightly bitter, but opens up into a dark cherry cocktail with a bit of acidity. Clearly past its prime but still quaffable.

    November 16, 2013 - Extremely mellow for a B&H, but not to the point that is was void of fruit. These days I rather prefer this label in this final stage, vs the bombastic candied fruit bruisers most tend to be early on. This one still carried a smidge of high alc palate in the end, which kept it from being one of the best bottles I've had here. Still - good stuff, but I wouldn't hold past another year or two.

    May 21, 2013 - Popped and poured at a relatively new restaurant in Wilmington named Rx. Dark fruits and espresso on the nose. Tannins were well integrated with a long finish of black currant.
