This is a very nice wine. I really like the extended barrel aging. Lends a sweet vanilla character to the smell that overwhelms the ripe, sweet, semi tart red cherry. Drinking this wine 2-6-13. Has aged well. Noticeable alcohol burn. Wine is on the lighter side for tannins and acidity is fresh and consistent with the other flavors.
