Lively with bright acidity, aromas of supple red cherries and mocha with a hint of maple syrup waft from the glass. On the palate this vintage mirrors the nose, showing flavors of pronounced red cherry, strawberry and hints of rhubarb. Well balanced, mid-palate the wine expresses a roundness filled with Crème Brule and finishes smooth with notes of dark chocolate and creamy caramel.

Wine EnthusiastThe dominant flavor here is vanilla, and it obliterates what might otherwise be pleasantly light and tangy raspberry fruit. Perhaps aggressive decanting will help to bring the fruit out, though retasting after a full day of being open just seemed to accentuate the bitterness.
