Earthy and mossy smelling, which is true to the variety. In addition, there's mild balsamic and dark-berry aromas. The palate is full and easy, with black-fruit flavors that carry herb and peppery qualities. Sweet and sizable for a $9 wine, with toast, coffee and controlled bitterness on the finish.
