Restrained, fruity nose initially...opens up with air which added oaky, leathery-reading-room notes. Full bodied, very new world in style; plenty of concentrated fruit right up front with sweet, ripe tannin backbone. Somewhat complex as it goes along. A pretty good wine but not really my style. Will please most palates, until they see the price.
