N: Fragrant and fruit forward with lightly spiced strawberry, cranberry and cherry fruit suggestions; medium+ oak with a new and old mix, moderate complexity and inviting.
P: Fruit flavours immediately reflect the nose with moderate oak layers and lightly toasted brownish spices. Medium+ tannins are accentuated by the alcohol (14%) and medium+ acidity. Moderate and finish. Overall a nice wine, perhaps best suited to food at present – enjoy through 2013.
