Whoa French oak! Cinnamon, nutmeg and other fall spices mingle with cedar and bright red fruits on the nose, with hints of gravel and sweet flowers in the background. The palate is a little more complex with red currants, plums and dust mixed with French oak. Tannins, oak and Autumn spices go on for quite a while. There are plenty of acids and tannins on the finish, so give this one a little time.
