A stylish, fresh red, with spiced black raspberry and black currant fruit and accents of green olive, dried thyme and sweet smoke, finely meshed with long, supple tannins. Medium- to full-bodied, this shows good focus and length.

Creamy, toasty oak adds a pleasant overlay and hints at what's to come, as the complexity of the flavors centers on currant, red and dark berry and licorice. Ends on the oaky side.
