Initially it smells a bit cheesy and drawn, but with time it evolves to show plum, raspberry and tire rubber aromas. In the mouth, it's tight, fresh and a little gritty, with red-fruit flavors of cherry and raspberry. Not overly generous in terms of mouthfeel, but it does push the fruit until the final bell. More of a food wine than a solo sipper.
