Deep dark cherry-red. Initially, nose of plummy fruits meshed with sweet spices (predominantly cinnamon), almond. And then a pause to imbibe the aromatic atmospherics of a patisserie: Crème anglaise, cannoli with vanilla custard ... and classic bourbon vanilla at that! A croquembouche's (profiterole) hazelnut brittle. Grated chocolate - both white and dark. Fresh, awakening. Palate is medium-bodied. Raspberry/chocolate flavours with a sprinkling of spice and cola. Fleshy, and an almost glycerolic texture; bulbous/expansive palate profile. Tannins - integrated/embedded - supportive, not standing apart. Oak - no obtrusive flavours to speak of ... yet all the benefits of a calm maturation is seasoned hogsheads. Acidity - in tune with the wine's weight and structure. Rest in bottle for a year or two. Needs time.

Shows terrific concentration, with dense and chewy tannins providing an appealing backdrop to the blueberry, dried cherry, date and candied ginger flavors. Tobacco, tomato leaf and espresso notes linger on the finish. Drink now through 2030.
