Warm base aromas of driftwood, cinnamon and a thread of toffee are topped by juicy cherries and ripe plums. The fruit carries well to the palate, beginning with red raspberry at entry, and leading to menthol, tobacco and tar flavors. Fruit that can be described as a black apple tempers the charred finish. Lush, ripe fruit and firm tannins, melded by mellow acidity make for an indulgent offering. —K.F.
