Pretty oak aromas hit the nose first and it takes some time for the crushed red cherry and mild spice notes to emerge, in the end creating a nice aromatic profile. Medium-to full-bodied with a good core of spicy fruit. The tannins create a slightly loose framework at the moment, but this should knit together with time. The right elements are there, but need a little order.
