I don't often travel west... But I like it, and I feel that (I know... Broken record) a blind with the old world style Calis, Bordeaux, an Niagara should happen soon.

Nose is dominated by a spicy, woody aroma. Silky mouthfeel with huge oak character. Fruit is there without being over extracted. I actually bet this would be better with some age on it.
