Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with plenty of forward fruit and some oak nuances. The aromas are pleasant, inviting and a bit earthy. The nose does not quite promise freshness, but in the mouth the wine has more interest than the flavors suggest. The finish is clean and tight, not bad but slightly drying. Funky, sweaty aromas of shoe polish and black fruits are horsey and warm on the nose. The palate is a touch acidic, but clean on the back side, with decent weight and balance. Dry, but not as crisp as the nose suggests. While there are assertive aromas of black currant, burnt offering aromas, the palate brings more of the same, smelling like those of rubber and mint. Finishes resiny. Weird and all over the map. A ripe fruity wine, smoky and minerally, with some white currant acidity.
