Tasting Notes

Moderately prominent wood toast stops just short of fighting with the exceptionally fresh black berry liqueur-like aromas that are liberally spiked with earth, spice and a whisper of smoked game. The rich and impressively powerful big-bodied flavors coat the palate with dry extract that also serves to buffer the firm tannic spine on the solidly persistent finish where the wood treatment reemerges. This borderline rustic effort won't win any awards for elegance but it certainly doesn't lack for concentration or character.
