WOW, I'm really high on this wine. It absolutely bridges together Old World structure, balance and grace with bigger New World cherry fruit and sweet oak resin. It starts Old World, with cherries and chestnut flavours but transitions to bigger sweeter cherry tobacco vanilla notes...but then finishes dry with a hint of sour. Like I said, WOW loving this wine.
