Palace Brands Company, Farmington CT.
Thirty years on.
Ruby. Rich toasty nose and the palate boasts vineyard-typical inferences of black currant, licorice-y flint and havana tobacco. A beguiling mélange of hard structure and soft flavors. Lots of ripe fruit but no easy sweetness. Savory sandpaper notes and the finish is attractively dry like a tonic. Now – 2028+.
