Toasty and solid, with cherry, kirsch and herbal aromas. The palate is expressive and clean, with tangy, healthy fruit that shows touches of citrus along with oak and chocolate. Seems a bit buttery on the finish, but the bet here is that it will fade with time. Nicely structured and properly tannic. Drink now through 2007. Imported by Billington Imports.
