Graham's Late Bottled Vintage 2008

Member Review by chriscage:

The coloration would be a murky rusty brown Earth with a tawny ring around the rim. The aromas are of spicy alcohol upfront before any swirling, with black cherry and concord sweetness. Flavors are pretty close to the aromas with sweet cherry, spiced vanilla, subtle dry oak making up the bulk along with dark chocolate and deep plummy fruits on the finish. The mouthfeel is velvety smooth, especially as it approaches room temperature, and the initial booziness softens and the flavors coat the palate rather well, leaving behind a rich lingering aftertaste. This still has several years of life and I think would further develop into a hugely well rounded LBV!
