Starts with a surprisingly rich nose dominated by the cab sauv's dark fruit and vanilla notes from the oak. On the palate, the wine is pretty light-bodied, with much of its structure coming from the oak. A touch disappointing after the promising nose. Tannins are definitely softening, so one to drink in the next year or two. Tasted Sept 2011.
