Ripe scents, not over-intensive but multi-faceted. Starting out with dried cranberries we arrive via blackberry pie and tanned leather to cherry liqueur, summoning forth many scents and familiar flavours. In its taste it can be felt that age has brought a few wrinkles to its face, but its full-bodiedness keeps it alive.And the right acids, of course. Leather and mushrooms are at least as strongly present as are fruits, the latter of which register rather in the form of jams, preserves and dried fruits.The structure is still stable, and ageing has enhanced its character.
