Deep aromas of ripe sweet cherries, coffee and vanilla; rich and jammy. Light dill notes add contrast. Cherries are outstanding forward, rich and smooth. Gives way to sage, and butterscotch showing rich, full oak and grape tannins. Finishes solid with smoke, white pepper and bell pepper. Aged 24 months in 100% new French oak and it shows but doesn’t get out of hand. Impressive effort by this very new winemaker.
