Boasting a generous measure of ripe red cherry fruitiness as its opening act, this full-bodied, nicely concentrated effort adds in notes of strawberry preserves and creamy oak in aromas that stay wholly on point and lead to potent, fully consistent flavors from entry to finish. The wine has a near-velvety, tailored texture that belies its youth and its ability to age well for several years to come, and we would recommend that the urge to enjoy this one now be held in check for another day.
