Smells raw and stemmy, with green wood aromas. In the mouth, it;s dry, as you'd expect. Not much flavor, for those accustomed to ripe fruit. It' a structural wine, meant to go with food, and could be nice with, say, a lamb curry, which would bring out the hidden sweetness. If you're careful about pairing, it's a nice wine. A Rhone blend of Carignane, Grenahe, Mourvedre and Syrah.
