Aromatically, this wine is sound. Scents of blackberry, dark plum, smoke and molasses are convincing. But it's rather snappy and electric in the mouth, with piercing acidity that creates a sharp mouthfeel. On the finish, there are lasting flavors courtesy of medium tannins and that aforementioned pulsing acidity.
