This light to medium bodied wine has aromas of bilberry, plum, slight oak and slight vanilla. These aromas are however overtaken by overwhelming dusty/Earthy notes. Tannins are quite pronounced, the finish is short and the wine needs about an hour to decant before it gets a bit better. The wine also has slight bitter and sour taste. Friend of mine brought it over and I was surprised at its high price. My impression: somewhere between DRINKABLE BUT WHY and NOTHING SPECIAL. Anyone who likes very earthy notes should give this one a try, but it’s not my thing. Tasted Mar/10.
