Come back to this in a few years. -JR

It displays a more expressive bouquet of balsam wood Asian spices incense black cherry and black raspberry. In the glass it displays considerable structure with the requisite fruit for balance. Give it 2-3 years to fully blossom and drink it from 2013 to 2020. 90+ -JM
