This medium bodied, fruity to integrated wine consists of prune and to lesser extent strawberry, raspberry and earthy notes. There are aromas of oak and vanilla, and the wine is smooth and silky. It has an aging potential of no more than 5 years, has some tannins (needs to open between half to an hour) with medium, slightly metallic finish. My impression: NICE. Tasted Feb/10.
