Some jammy cooked strawberry, cherry, and prune, but dominated on the nose by oak, with some vanilla, cedar, cocoa, menthol, a bit of black pepper, and some volatile acidity. Tart (and somewhat bitter) cherry, black pepper, menthol, and a vague woodiness come across very strongly on the palate. Medium body, with medium plus acidity and tannins. Rather hot alcohol, especially on the finish.
