Nose of barnyard, sweet and sour fruit, and hint of spice, same on the palate, medium/big body, tasty, easy to sip and savor, almost fruit forward, will improve with age but easy to enjoy now and buy more, $17 a bottle locally.

Lovely allspice with hints of orange zest and sweet California Oak, ageing in the backyard for this winter's fire, followed by caramel found in Ghirardelli caramel milk chocolate, then a solid touch of heat in the throat that finishes in gently but definitely warming your chest and stomach, this has enough of everything for me without being too much, very tasty, and an aftertaste of caramel and spice making you want to enjoy another sip.
