Wet-stones and sweet licorice-y vanilla scents. I found it was light on fruit notes although some plum and raisin. Soft and supple tannins gave the wine a medium bodied mouth feel. After about an hour of decanting the wine opened up on the berry side with some cherry notes, although at the expense of the already soft tannins. For the price, I have found more enjoyable wines.
Tasted January 2014.
