VM94: Opaque ruby. Red- and blackcurrant, licorice, pipe tobacco and spices on the highly aromatic nose. Then ripe and sweet in the mouth, with excellent definition and lift to the red berry, cherry and spicecake flavors. Finishes with sweet, harmonious tannins and lovely persistence. Showing a lot of energy right now; Ramey says that this will put on weight and gain a darker character and more power by this time next year.
