Sweet dark cherry, plum and kirsch nuances cover a nose of soy, vanilla and spice. Palate-wise, sweet mulled dark red fruits and blackberry preserves are framed by concentrated, almost-sweet tannins and integrated oak flavors. Finish is smooth and belies the fact that this wine will last for the next decade.
