This medium bodied, nicely aromatic wine has notes of pine, oak, black cherry, vanilla and blueberry. The fruit is somewhere between fruity and integrated, the wine is smooth with pronounced tannins that go away after about 1 hour of decanting, and a nice long finish. This wine will benefit from aging for at least a year (to reduce the tannins) and should age nicely for at least 10 years. My impression: very NICE to BEAUTIFUL. Tasted Mar/10. I think this is a great buy for the price.
