A soft and generous wine with a gentle kick. Sure there is some oak here but it's certainly not overpowering. The tasting notes suggest sandalwood and that is spot on. The fruit is luscious with a delicious length. Some creaminess is evident but the stars of the show are certainly chocolate, dark fruits and baking spices.
A great buy for the $$. I've tasted $50 wines without the balance and poise.
