Cocktail cherries and sweet spice, with notes of savory bread, newly oiled leather and pronounced French oak on the nose. Smooth upon entry, with a richness that builds. Flavors of cherry, spice and savory bread carry over from the nose, with lush plums and a hint of jerky. Dusty, powdery tannins lend softness. French oak character comes through on the nose, palate and lingering finish.
