This wine requires breathing time to show its true colors. Early on it's reduced and cheesy, but soon it offers cleaner aromas of cola, berry and dark plum. The acidity is a bit high and sheering, but on the plus side it's fresh and driving, with bright cherry and berry flavors along with ample oak.
