Fairly classic in style, with hard spice, leather and dark fruit on the nose. A bit tough and chewy. The palate features raspberry and cola flavors, and the finish is long, if a bit racy and tannic. Imported by Vintage Wines Inc.
After a somewhat gritty start, the bouquet settles on aromas of perfumed red fruit and lemony oak. It feels full, with nice acidic cut, offering flavors of leather, earth and savory baked fruit. Fairly long and mildly herbal on the finish.
