Full and fairly rich, this is made in an approachable style that yet carries weight and has plenty of stuffing for years to come. Plenty of ripe dark fruit (cassis, mulberry) with touches of tobacco and hints of oak spice. There is a soft, silky presence of oak yet very well-integrated to the wine, with no overt vanilla or other flavors. Still a youthful mulberry color at the rim, with of depth and concentration, as well as balance throughout the mid-palate and finish.
