Dame Mimi

Deep thick garnet with a riddy brick edge and heavy sediment. Buttery, banana nose rife with alcohol and wet leather. Rich cake batter and cream cheese frosting head the almost smokey peanut butter and blackberry jam nose.

Less complex in the mouth, fruit going hard a Southerly direction, pensive chalk and wet paper entry with a sharply flabby mid-section lacking too much to get excited about. Round and uneventful in the finish, while rich and full, it definitely is on its last legs and drinking considerably past prime.

Drink’em if ya got’em!
