There is a touch of resinous new oak, but it is moving into cedar and tobacco. Very good black fruits here, and a touch of red berries, also a little cherry. Very nice palate, plenty of elegance here as well as charm, with buoyant berry fruits and very good balance of coffeeish oak, smooth tannins and pert acidity.

Aging: 1 year in French oak casks
