The bouquet is meaty, dense and full of berry jam, but it is also rather generic and lacks any particular individual notes. That said, the wine is quite good, bordering on excellent. In the mouth, you get a full blast of black cherry and licorice, and the finish is typically full and chewy. Not that complex but very good in a straight-ahead way. —M.S.
