Open top, barrel fermented and then aged in the same barrel.  Dark black cherries,  Christmas spice,  ripe red curretns dominate the nose.  Velvety smooth as the tannins have softend with a little time in the bottles.  On the palate,  black figs, dark chocolate and a hint of clove envelope your mouth with a long, soft finish.  This will will age 20 years.
