A bit darker, Medium ruby to red. The nose is of fresh red Oregon fruits & berries, a cherry aromatic is supported by more cola spice and a touch of subtle oak. This is a finesse styled Beaux Freres. Medium bodied with light-sweet tannins, very good purity and depth. The texture here is beguiling as well. Difficult to resist drinking now but will continue to evolve and improve until at least 2023.
