This wine has been aging for 15 months in 50% new French Oak. The wine is full bodied. Pale straw in color, nose exhibit, apples, roasted nuts, and anise and as it opens up more juicy fruits and spice. Smells like a burgundy only much richer in the mouth. The flavors follow through with a full richness in entry and a lingering finish. Can age at least 10 years.
