2014 vintage; drank 7/15/17 @ Golgi Apparatus.

Black/brown appearance.

Minimal tan head; no lace.

Sweet brandy, milk chocolate & marshmallow notes in the nose.

Thick, smooth mouthfeel.

Sweet brandy, milk chocolate & banana flavors up front; marshmallow notes on the finish.

Very sweet but with bold flavors; is this STILL a year out? Or will it always be a hint too sweet for transcendence?

Really jammy fig quality. Big time sweetness and very rich. Drinks like a dessert wine. There is minimal roast or bitterness. Rich and cloying sweetness.
