Much enjoyed. Adequately big for my tastes. Not too dry. Nice rounded, full bodied rich finish in the mouth. I can’t describe the nose well. Red fruit there, but husky, not “fruity” or fresh smelling. Strongly agree, “[black] tea” is a prominent flavor that also describes this wine’s “dryness” (which is almost a flavor more than a mouthfeel quality). Herbal flavors. Sweet char, like edges of pork fat. Very good structure and mouth feel. Biting dry flavors on the FRONT of palate, but NOT at the finish. I imagine it with salt forward Northern Italian flavors: capers, olive, heavily herbed fish or roasts. Good value.

I’m bucking the review trend here and saying once this wine is allowed to breathe, there’s lovely Italian #barbera spice, wild cherry fruit and tannins with a firm but polished grip.

16/20 (88/100) Аромат вишни и ежевики с нотами перца и сухих лекарственных трав. Умеренная тельность, довольно высокая кислотность и замшевые танины. Дружелюбное вино.
