my #2 of the night.

Sweet coffee back with strawberries and crushed plums on the nose.

One of the fullest mouthfeels with apparent tannins still.

Cocoa dust, Black cherries and a spiciness rounds out the palate.

This finishes with a black licorice flavor that goes on.

94 now but I can see it picking up more of that floralness and complexity in a decade or so.
