Chaos Theory, 2021
Nose: Intense bouquet of ripe red fruits, dark cherry, plum, and licorice. Secondary notes of leather, toasted marshmallow, wild herbs, and florals, followed by hints of caramel apple, Asian spices, heavy cream, tobacco, and cocoa nibs. Palate: Ripe, savory, and concentrated with silky mouthfeel, zesty acidity, and sweet tannins.
