Average price: $39.49 from 2 stores
Big black cherry, vanilla and cola notes greet the nose along with nuanced smoky, toasty oak, black currant jam and a bit of clove. A bit less intense than the nose suggest, this is none the less a fairly rich wine though one with plenty of acidity keeping it lively in the mouth. Packed with black cherry and black raspberry fruit over some stone nuances and wrapped in a vanilla and cream gauze this is sure to be a crowd pleaser. It’s just a touch chewy in the mouth with the wood tannins showing up a bit on the moderately long, wood spiced finish but this checks all the boxes. 90pts
