Open aromatics of sweet ripe fruit layered with toasty French oak and hints of caramel.
Layers of flavor coat the palate with broad appeal, wonderful cherry texture and seamless tannins. Fruit is dense berry with a slightly more pronounced oak note than last year, giving a beautiful vanilla impression. These flavors persist a long time in a lengthy and powerful finish.

100% French oak barrels, 40% new, 22 months in barrel, variety of coopers
