2012 vintage. Dark and toasty in the taste, aroma fairly faint. Black body with small beige head. Taste makes up for aroma in a big way, plenty of burn at the back. Some dried pit fruit, some oak, some chocolate. Extremely enjoyable.

bottle - Pours dark brown with a small, lingering tan head. It has a rich toffee and caramel smell and taste. It’s sweet and full bodied. It’s kind of different and may be a little sweet for some, but I enjoyed it.
