There is a trace of surmaturité to the liqueur-like aromas of blue pinot fruit, plum and game. Otherwise the medium weight flavors possess a beguiling texture as the dense extract both coats the palate and pushes the moderately firm tannins to the background on the remarkably persistent finish where traces of rusticity and warmth arrive. I like the concentration and richness but the nose detracts mildly from the overall sense of quality. 87 Points. 2021+ - Allen Meadows, Burghound.
