Oddly floral and slightly tarry on the nose, this shows noticeably French oak under that floral and spicy fruit. A little sweet on entry, this is smooth, rich and polished with an initial rush of sweet toasty oak followed by jammy strawberry and blackberry fruit that in turn yields to dark, tarry, oily spice notes on the backend and through the long, spicy and slightly hot finish. A rather imposing wine with well managed oak though I do wish this showed more depth and brightness to the fruit. Nonetheless, once you get past the nose and a little lactic quality on the palate, this is pretty suave and certainly holds broad appeal. 87pts
