Oaken layers make themselves known from nose to finish, with notes of cream, vanilla and cinnamon. The fruit thins out midpalate, revealing bright acidity and insistent tannins. A good pour for an everyday dinner.
The light, one-dimensional body of red plum, toast and brown sugar is finished off with dried herbs and another wisp of brown sugar. The delicate touch that this wine has would be better suited to more complex fruit, thus attaining elegance over transparency.
