TASTING NOTES

Leathery and nutty with a layer of balsamic and madera. Loud tertiary aromas leading the way, but layers of secondary and primary are still evident. Faded, thin, but still evident. Still alive, but definitely over the hill in terms of precision and balance. I can only speculate that evolution is advanced due to merely good (vs. ideal) history of storage. Typically reclusive, dusty and dry Borgogno style.
