Wonderful raisin, creamy vanilla, caramel and cherry aromatics. Bright orange peel fruit on the palate where a lick of sassy vanillan oak and grippy tannin stamps added authority. It's long, distinguished and eminently food-friendly.

Aromas of blackberries and new wood with some bark and cedar, following through to a full body with ripe, chewy tannins and intense flavor at the finish. Hints of ripe fruit at the end. Needs a year or two to mellow.
