Tasting Notes: Offers a dense core of dark plum and fig fruit, coated with baker's chocolate and smoldering tobacco notes. The finish hints at chestnut, bay, tar and pepper flavors. Shows excellent range and character, but needs some time to knit together. Best from 2016 through 2028. 650 cases made. — JM
