as Szabo says, think chianti, I get dusty, drying tannins, sour, earthy, cherry fruit, I will be interested to see how this evolves over a couple of years from an 88 today, very nice wine for the $

Retasted Feb 2016: Matured quite a lot from last tasting, with some slightly oxidative notes creeping in. Drink soon.
