aromatically very interesting - cedar, leather, black licorice, cassis. beautifully balanced in the mouth - excellent structure, bright fruit. Black licorice, cherry with some actual cedar-like flavours. Finish is long and earthy, with a hint of the licorice returning at the end. Feels to me like there is still some work to be done in the bottle, I agree with Mr. Lawrason pick up this tremendous value and give it a couple of years in the cellar.
