Noticed the light color right away. Very subtle vanilla note with some berry & prune. Expected more oak on the tongue but it had a fine fruitiness with a little hint of metal. Not wowed by it. — 5 months ago

Peppery and full bodied with notes of tobacco at first then caramel after it opened. A bit pricey. Enjoyed this at the winery while observing Covid restrictions. (No tastings. Had to buy the bottle.) Nice dark color. Tasted pepper, plum and caramel. — 5 months ago
