Earthy, dark and meaty wine, with rubber, deep black fruit, bacon and leather on the nose. This is a typical huge wine from Atauta, with roasted plum, blackberry and ingrained spice flavors. Long on the finish, with tobacco, herb and oak character. Drinkable now but it's hard and tannic; better to wait three to 12 years.
