Smoke, gamey, sage, and dark cherry. Steady tannins and acidity, but not too heavy. Very interesting representation.

Just ok, oak is not well integrated, fruit concentration slightly lacking.

My rating is high, partly because this is a great value. Dark berries in the fruit, which is a little weak, and a touch oxidized. There’s lots of oak and pepper, strong acidity and tannins. Dusty graphite minerality too, and heat. Good wine for strong flavored food.
