Pleasant, with lingering aromas of ripe blackberries, black currants,chocoalte and sweet oak. The palate is a touch more restrained, yet still has gobs of black fruit flavors mixed with cocoa, dark chocolate, cedar and cinnamon. The finish is tannic and grippy, with perhaps a touch too much dry oak character. Overall, pretty good though.
