This interesting blend is all over the place -- lean then soft, basic then complex, shallow then rich. The nose is very nice, with fresh cherry, dark berries, raisin, cured meat, herbs, and black pepper, but on the palate it's subdued, mostly dried fruit and wood -- quite bland, actually. But there's also a refreshing tartness that peaks out here and there, and while there isn't much depth, and while the bland flavours end abruptly, there are lingering notes, with impressive length, that suggest an almost port-like quality. Interesting, with a lot going on, but frustratingly inconsistent.
