A mix of spicy oak, peppery cherry and tobacco flavors highlights this firm, leafy red. Tips toward the dry side, with vanilla and black pepper notes lining the gripping finish. Best from 2019 through 2027. 4,000 cases made.
This opens with aromas of French oak, vanilla, baking spice and steeped plum. The one-dimensional palate shows dried black cherry, sour cranberry and espresso with close-grained but not very persistent tannins that dry out the finish.
