This style of wine is more fruit forward with low skin contact. We also added a small amount of oak this year to see what that would produce and it is quite nice. In fact I'd consider adding a bit more in future years. The wine has excellent fruity aromas of prune, chocolate, cherry and pretty well balanced all around. Really happy with the wine. Its really new and for sure in a few months we'd see the acid come down a bit more although its acceptable now.
