Initially a poor display on the nose with a powerful barnyard scent coming through and muting other aromas, after a 60-70 minute decant, the barnyard scent gave way to a more expressive nose with notes of cedar/wood spice, plum, and chocolate. On the palate, tobacco and leather dominated, a medium to long finish....big and bold!

GL tasting Pape Clement 10/18/17. Nose complex and hints of autumn leaves and spice and clear oak. Good structure. Long finish.

Dark purple burgundy in color, notes of cassis, soy sauce, and mint, taste of cinnamon, tobacco and earth, rustic, firm tannin, still quite closed need more bottle aging or long decant.
