There's plenty of toasty oak, but it only serves to accent the mixed berries and dried herbs that form the core of this juicy wine. Finishes with complex espresso, mocha and chocolate flavors that carry a slight bitter note.
A thick, buttery and smoky style that may be too much for some tasters. Overripe and grilled peaches lack a bit of depth, yet finish long, lemony and tart, with buttered-popcorn overtones.
Inviting lemon, vanilla and honey aromas introduce a wine with pleasant toasted oak flavors, but there's little heft beyond the initial wash of warmth that hits the palate. Some citric pop to the finish which helps balance the honey and oak. The overall impression is positive and flavors are within the right realm, but the lack of depth leaves you wanting more.
