Smoky, toasty oak aromas. Better balance in this wine between the oak and berry fruit components. Will appeal to those who like a good hit of toast up front.
Liked the smoky overtones; might seem a little heavy-handed to some (we joked about "liquid smoke") but found it quite enjoyable. Too high an alcohol content?
