Second thirds flavor profile is, for the most part, a continuation of the first thirds profile. Still sweet and creamy bread in spades, charred wood and bitterness and chocolate. The white pepper is no longer tame and is thankfully more prominent. Further, a sharp minerality enters, combining well with the oily and tongue sticking tannins. On the retrohale, still just the right amount white pepper, dried nuts and sweet creamy bread. The finish is still a long and lingering charred wood and bitterness, white pepper and dried nuts. Towards the middle of the second third, intermittent stewed stone fruits enter. I loved this note but too bad it wasn’t consistent. Body and strength continues to be medium full and medium, respectively.
