The second thirds flavor profile smooths out, still delivering flavors of smokey wood, dry black pepper, sweet and spicy cedar, dry minerality, residual dry jalapeno like spiced heat and bright stone fruit. A consistent leather note enters the profile starting from the beginning of the second third. Through the nose, intensified black pepper, spicy cedar and faint dry nuts. The finish continues to be long and lingering with smooth residual dry jalapeno heat, spicy cedar and smokey wood. Body is still at medium, while strength increases to a medium-full.
