The wine is a deep red color and is lush. It's aged in both French oak and stainless steel. It had a taste of smokiness and dark fruit. It opened up nicely and came across as aromatic and rich.
We tasted this on successive nights and the second night it didn't reach the high marks we gave it the first night, seeming a bit too tannic. In terms of QPR (quality price ratio), this is highly rated but not a truly great wine.
