There's currently an upfront oaky presence to this wine, with bold notes of toasted vanilla, char and sweet spice that sit atop a brambly, ripe dark-fruit core. Flavors of cherry pie, baked plum and boysenberry abound on the medium-weight palate, framed by structured tannins that result in a texture like crushed velvet. Notes of pepper, game and leather unfold on the evolving finish. Drink now–2022.
