Slightly shy, with aromas of olive, herbs and mushroom accenting the dark fruit that rules. The palate is thick, like jam, with chewy fruit and smooth tannins. Almost soft-souled but falls far short of earning the dreaded “soft” label. A wine for near-term drinking that finishes with a wave of chocolate.
