Gold in color and charred to the max, this Viura is dominated by the barrel. Aromas of toast and butter smother any fruit that might want to get out. The palate is creamy, as is the flavor profile, then bitter char and heavy oak come back on the finish. How much oak is too much oak? You be the judge.
