Full and leathery, with tobacco and lots of familiar dark-fruit aromas. The palate seems almost jet-propelled in its forwardness, while the flavors of prune, black cherry, pepper and chocolate are fine. Could stand for a bit more mouthfeel and plushness; the tannins run hard. Imported by Banfi Vintners.
