Fully ripe fruit, vanilla syrup, cedar wood, chocolate mocha, and sweet spices. Still young for a big wine.

My first Araujo, this is their 2nd label. I'm getting loads of exotic black fruit, spices and espresso flavors coming through. This wine has a beautiful nose, the spices are nicely balanced with the tannins.
