Some complexity here. Notes of oak, vanilla, tobacco, leather, black licorice, plum, blackberry, dark chocolate, and cherry. Full bodied and balanced, although with diminished acidity from a couple years ago when I tried this wine last. Very fine medium tannins. It finishes with a black pepper element on end that was not present on the nose. Length is good.
