You can sense the touch of oak on your initial sniff before finding all the licorice, cocoa and black plums. Round, plush and polished, the wine is packed with sweet, juicy, dark red fruits and roasted espresso beans. Give this a few years in the cellar to allow for the oak to better integrate and it will be a treat to enjoy for the next 12 years or more.

Dark in color, the wine is rich, lush, opulent and filled with sweet, dark red fruits, licorice, espresso, cocoa and flowers. Supple, fresh and vibrant with ripe tannins and a polished finish, this is going to be nice to enjoy early, yet will add complexity with some aging.

Medium bodied, lighter than usual, with a reliance on its licorice and red fruit. Round textured and forward, this is still quite oaky. More time might help a bit.
