Review

Deep ruby. Powerful scents of blueberry, blackcurrant, cracked pepper and gingerbread, with a subtle undertone of violet. Very spicy in the mouth, displaying concentrated dark fruit preserve flavors and velvety texture. The peppery note comes back on the finish, which is tightly focused and very persistent. This seems pretty primary today and would benefit from decanting or a few more years of patience.
