This wine opens up with aromas of blackberry/plumy fruit, licorice, smoke, pencil shavings, black pepper, Asian spices and gamey. On the mouthfeel, medium-full bodied, very rustic, highly concentrated flavours, low acidity and firm tannins. This blend finish is medium length, slightly tart with dark fruit, pencil shaving texture lingering. There is nothing wrong with this wine, but it failed to excite me. I would have prefer more forward fruit, less rustic flavours, less extraction and a more easy drinking wine for this price. Not a wine I would buy again.
