Blueberry and other sweet berry aromas are flowery but not very staunch or dark. The palate has a high acidity level and a scouring feel to go with tart, driving cherry and red plum flavors. Scratchy, zesty and crisp on the finish, with tight tannins that draw down.
Sort of sweet and gaseous to start, with rubbery, medicinal aromas. The palate is tight and closed, with warm, crusty dark-fruit flavors, an herbal influence and heat. Thus the finish is a little fiery and peppery, and there’s chop and bite to the overall feel. A kitchen-sink blend of Malbec, Bonarda and Syrah.
Woody and baked up front, its cooked, rubbery aromas setting set up a surprisingly sheer and sharp palate that’s short on substance and balance. Tastes generic, with linear acidity resulting in little cushion or mouthfeel.
