The nose shows some alcohol heat with ripe black fruits and some vanilla. Black fruits, black currant and elderberry, and some vanilla show on the palate. Tannins are full, round, and mouth-filling but the acids are lacking in comparison. Vanilla shows the most on the finish, lingering with the tannins. This is a moderately priced crowd-pleaser. Drink with a great blue cheese burger. Recommended (89). DH
