The image on the front label was captured by photographer David K. Brunn. The ancient Drumlane Abbey in County Cavan, Ireland served as a place of refuge for almost one thousand years until it was destroyed by the forces of Oliver Cromwell. Here the great patriot Owen Roe O’Neill sought solace until he too breathed his last, also at the hands of Cromwell in 1649.

The 2017 is tasting great now but will continue to shine for many years in the cellar. An uplifting nose is bursting with aromas of strawberry, cocoa powder and spice. The palate is very soft and textural with dried fruit notes and subtle hints of oak and vanilla. The dried fruit notes linger with hints of baking spices, velvety mouthfeel and firm tannins. Drink now through 2029+. Aged 16 months in French oak barrels.
