Fruit-forward of black raspberry, blueberry and black cherry with notes of cedar cigar box. Full-bodied with supple tannins and a dark chocolate finish.

Not as much oak as I was expecting, but tons of juice-like fruit. I wonder if they micro-oxidize? This is a wine that lacks risk, but is a safe bet if you don't care about terroir.
