Moderately deep ruby. Perfumed aromas of spicy cherry, licorice and ink are tinged with notes of orange zest, pipe tobacco and menthol, the latter a bit dominating at present. Boasts impressive depth and power, with extremely pure, deep and complex flavors of red cherry, spicy plum and grilled meat that show energy and vibrancy on the palate. The very long finish displays seductive floral tones. This put on considerable weight in the glass, but will need at least several years of bottle aging to shake off its menthol accent and gain more volume. A real iron-fist-in-a-velvet-glove, with extremely fine tannins and uncommon grace.Author: Ian D'Agata
