20 months in new oak
The nose is spicy and dark, with aromas of espresso, black plum, black currant, and deeply charred sweet oak. In the mouth, the wine is rich with dark chocolate covered cherries, freshly ground coffee, layered with broad but supple tannins. The long finish is perfumed with fresh vanilla bean.
