Raspberry and currant aromas ride over subtle tones of cedar, licorice and vanilla bean. This is a big wine, with intense oak flavors of vanilla, allspice and cedar that overpower the cranberry and raspberry fruit flavors. Plentiful grippy tannins are balanced by a backbone of acidity. The spicy tannic finish dissipates to a softer cedar note.
