This is as close to Burgundy as the USofA gets! Dark garnet in color. Deep black cherry, raspberry puree, earth, sweet spice, smoke, tobacco, hay bale nose. In the mouth, sweet and ripe black cherry, cranberry, raspberry fruit; intense earth spice, leather, herb, dried tobacco/tea leaves. Some cola tingle, roasted game, sage, clove, some heat. Powerfully smooth, subtle, complexed. Aging nicely, yet better days are ahead.
