This is a warm, juicy, fruit-forward wine with loads of upfront blueberry, ripe plum and black cherry laced with notes of cedar, spicy brown cardamom and vanilla. Aged primarily in large oak ovals, the wood influence stays in the background, but there is a pleasurable, mouth filling roundness to the palate that belies its time in the barrel. This is a delicious wine with relatively light tannins, a bright mid-palate and a long-lasting finish.
