Tasting Notes

The color is medium ruby with pink at the edge. Notes of balsam wood, spice box, tar, and rosewood reluctantly emerge from the aromatics. In the mouth, flavors of spice and leather compete with dusty cherry fruit in a tannic, austere, closed, steely style. I do not find enough sweetness, glycerin, or extract to make this profound, but it is very good to excellent. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025.

Provenance

Toronto based collector retiring overseas and selling collection in it’s entirety. Stored in 57F temperature and proper humidity since purchase.
