Despite being a full four years old, this wine's aromas aren't yet fully revealing their charms, with high-toned vanilla, spice, cedar and cherry notes. The flavors are tightly wound as well, with a light gamy streak throughout. It's not clear if it will open with additional time or if what you see is what you get.
