Smooth, welcoming aromas of cola, black fruits and integrated oak are soft and indicate that this is ready to drink. A plump, sappy palate delivers ripe berry and chocolate flavors, while this is fleshy on a finish weighted down by berry pulp.

Good depth here with rich plum and black-cherry flavors. Plenty of spicy and earthy development too. The tannins are nicely honed and the acidity sizzles away on the finish.
