"(20% new French oak) Vivid red. Aromas of cherry cola, blackberry and woodsmoke are lifted by floral and peppery spice notes. Densely packed but lively on the palate, offering dark berry and bitter cherry flavors and showing supple texture. Tightens up slowly with air, showing good clarity and thrust on a long, spice-tinged, gently tannic finish. - Josh Raynolds"
