Big and round, with color and a bouquet of rubber, leather, chocolate and berries. Plump and smoky on the palate, but kind of hard and tannic. And with time those tannins become even more monstrous in their collective intensity. Still, as a whole there's solid flavor and plenty of clout. Imported by Classical Wines.
