Nose: A lovely varietal lift with a big red cherry and savory cherry and strawberry fruits bouquet. Adding to the bouquet are the aromas of spicy French oak - toasty brown spices and savory complexity.
Palate: Reflects the nose with a warm, savory and toasty feel, medium+ tannins, medium acid, medium+ oak flavor. Balanced and well made. Drink now through 2013.
