My HS graduation year sine. Still plenty of structure. Some fruit too. Loved it.

The nose led with black cherry, licorice, and espresso. It's all there on the palate with the addition of cedar. The finish lingers with an herbaceousness. Excellent.

Awesome nose filled with dewy cheese and toe nail smells. Traditional flavor of the grand cru
