Lots of cooked/dried fruit on the nose (blackberry jam, prune, and fig) along with some smoke, baking spice, and a bit of cured meat. Tons of presence on the palate, yet smooth and supple, and gaining complexity with some molasses, coffee, and menthol coming out. Medium tannins and acidity, and surprisingly well balanced given the 16% alcohol. Medium long finish with blackberry, plum, and coffee.
