Strong review of a wine that I have yet to taste. Lenn, you've talked about Hungarian oak before. Do you still find it's a kind of middle point between French and American?

Evan: This is definitely a wine worth checking out once released.

As for Hungarian oak, to me it does fall in between French and American, but more towards the French. It's actually the same species of oak (obviously just grown elsewhere) and contributes more of a sweet spice than the overt vanilla you often get from American oak.

I tend to like a little Hungarian oak in the mix.
