Spicy plum and cherry aromas are oaky and smell a bit like freshly laid cement. This is more tight and racy than fat or heavy, evidence of a cool vintage. Lightly herbal flavors of currant and plum are spicy and finish with oak-driven notes of toast as well as green olive and pointed acidity. Drink through 2017.
