It was aged for 15 months in French and American oak. It offers up a classy nose of cedar, liquid minerals, lavender, cinnamon, blueberry, and black cherry. Layered on the palate with silky tannin, this rich, full-flavored effort has great concentration and a lengthy, pure finish. Give it 2-3 years of additional cellaring and drink it through 2020.

Expressive hot cherry liqueur pervades the nose, backed up with pine and dark chocolate scents. This medium to full-bodied wine is laden on entry with fennel and black liquorice flavors, while juicy red and black fruits dance along the palate. The firm tannins and still bright acidity will keep this enjoyable for at least another 5-7 years.
