Shows elegant notes of vanilla spice acquired during the year the wine spends ageing in a mixture of French and American oak barrels; this complements the grapes natural spicy nature. In the mouth, it is well structured, intense and vibrant, with round, soft tannins, and a lingering and complex finish.
