Review:
Smoked game, hearty black-plum and wet slate and clay aromas make for a heady entry to the nose of this bottling. Smoked berry and licorice flavors prove soft, clean and full on the palate, where a lingering acidity pushes deep into the finish.

Review:
Deep garnet. Fresh red and dark berry, floral and exotic spice qualities on the assertively perfumed nose, along with suggestions of cola, smoky minerals and succulent herbs. Shows superb clarity and spicy lift to the juicy cherry, raspberry and boysenberry flavors, which slowly deepen and turn spicier through the midpalate. Closes extremely long, smooth and precise, with resonating florality and a sweetening suggestion of vanilla. All destemmed fruit and 35% new French oak.
