Lush and masculine, and every bit made to emphasize extract and oak. It's dark, with heavy berry fruit, density and ripeness. On the finish it turns even darker, with bitter chocolate and wood smoke. Arguably better at first; airing seems to close it up rather than expanding it. Drink now or cellar for up to five years.
