A barrel selection. · This is clearly a step up from the regular bottling. Vibrant and long well-spiced cherry aromas. Powerfully flavored dark red fruits that are rich and succulent. Beautifully balanced with admirable integration of oak and alcohol. The silky finish goes on and on. Whoa, yeah, hell yeah! Reviewed December 17, 2008
