4.5/5 rDev +4.7%
Cork dated 04/06: aged 22 months. 750 ml.
Served at 61 degrees F/ 16 degrees C. Big wine glass.
Attractive color, red bordering on rusty brownish orange. A finger of beige head. Lace like a herd of small dinosaurs.
Smells deep, rich, mellow. Brown bread crust, fig jam, dates, cedar, gentle warm spice, cocoa powder, earth, a bit of rumlike alcohol. Cohesive, and very nice.
Tastes smooth and mellow, but rich. Dark fruit, sweet brown bread, chocolate cake, a drizzle of molasses, cedar, earth, warm spice, and a hint of herbal/grassy hops. Medium sweetness, good balance. Some warming alcohol. Long finish, with all of the flavors lingering.
Soft smooth texture, almost creamy, with a touch of woody astringency. Very smooth and drinkable.
This aged beautifully. I really enjoyed it.
