Smoky and dark on the nose with on overlay of oily coffee beans adding depth to the bright wild cherry fruit. Smooth on entry then dropping out a bit with small tannins and good acid feeling a bit exposed. The fruit is very nice, rather low-key cherry fruit with herbal top notes and some well-integrated vanilla and graham cracker oak notes. The finish is modest with a little vanilla cream character and only modest fruit losing out to dry tannins on the finish. The oak here is quite prominent, but the wine does have a nice earthy edge to it. 87pts

I was expecting a lot bite from this bold red wine, but it's actually incredibly smooth. I get lots of tea and herbs, and a nose full of cherries. Perfect wine for a hearty meal.
