Toasty, earthy, chocolaty and meaty, but not overly fruity or sweet. The palate features solid structure and body, with rooty raspberry, plum, nutmeg and other spice-based flavors. A little rough and short on the finish, with firm tannins. Gets better the longer it sits, so decant or let breathe before pouring.
