A new proprietory bottling from Tom (= more expensive). Definately the best of the 98s' I've had so far. Medium ruby. Absolutely rhone-like nose of barnyard, forest floor and some spices along with wild plums. All hit the palate with the fruit taking over on the finish. Solid entry weighty center and a 3&3/4 lapper finish. 88/86. 40 on futures.14.5%alc. WW
