Rather light color. Spicy nose. Juicy and spicy with rustic finish. 2014 vintage.

Berry and smoke on the nose. Flavor is classic OVZ with a bit of zip and zing. Berry sauce and cherry candies. Simple but pleasing.

Nice and smooth! Not much bite, but that's fine. Surprisingly sweet, but palatable.

I found this wine to be particularity jammy, and with a strange metallic taste on the front of the palette. Mid-palette you got a fresh hit of raspberry, and then a finish with something like dried cherries or cranberries - quite tart, but aged. The finish was a blanket of vanilla extract - felt like oak was used to cover imperfections and poor balance. Unfortunately none of the cedar or spiciness mentioned by others - that would've helped balance the wine and make it more enjoyable!
