Yuck, what a funky, stinky, pretty much undrinkable mess. There's some fruit in here somewhere, as proven by that initial fleeting whiff of strawberries, but the rest is brettiness in a very bad way, the band-aid smell crushing everything else on the nose, including the leather and dirt, after which it's like drinking wood with a varnish chaser. It's just unpleasant all around, and while much of this could be a bottle-specific problem, it's pretty clear the wine itself has very little, if anything, to recommend it.
