This wine is a blend of fruit from Obelisco, Olsen, Oasis and Kiona vineyards. Wood-forward aromas (60% new French oak) of char and coffee are out in front of herb and black cherry. The palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied, pulling up short on the finish. There's enjoyment to be had but the variety seems hard to find.
