Editor note: Firm and quite deep, somewhat dried vegetal to tobacco and a little nutty-woody aroma of ripe black and red berries with notes reminiscent of fresh tomatoes, a little Mediterranean herbs and a hint of tar. Taut, tangy fruit with smoky and a little dark-roasty wood spice, present, fine sandy tannins, persistent on the palate, has power but also certain acid bite, salt in the background, tobacco nuances and coriander, a little bitter chocolate and coffee grounds, a touch of lovage and bitter herbs, very good, firm finish with ripe, rather dark juice and spice.
