Aromas of plum, prune, blackberry, smoke, anise, baking spice, and a bit of green bean. Fairly simple and lean on the palate, with plum, tart cherry, black pepper, and a bit of vanilla. Medium bodied, grippy tannins, and tart acidity. Medium length, finishing with plum, cherry, green bell pepper, and some earthiness. A little bit austere, but otherwise decent value.
