From the onset this wine struts its stuff. The nose amounts to a magnetic blend of cola, spice and exotic dark fruit, while the palate is intense with driving black cherry and blackberry flavors. Yes, there's a touch of blatant oak that sits on the palate and lasts through the finish, but the bet here is that it will dissipate with a little more time in bottle. And the wine's spice and cinnamon notes are star level.
