  •  Burghound Tasting note: I hadn't tried this since 2005 and time has been highly beneficial as the wood it still displayed has now been entirely absorbed which more easily allowed the spicy aromas of mostly secondary fruit scents to shine. The big, rich and still moderately structured flavors offer very solid concentration and excellent complexity, all wrapped in a lingering and well-balanced finale. For my taste this robust and muscular effort has just arrived on the front edge of its peak drinkability and it should easily be capable of holding here for years to come.
