Mocha and coffee are the lead aromas, but they are covering up herbal, almost green notes of bell pepper and tobacco. The palate has a pretty good feel along with flavors of herbs, green veggies and raspberry. Persistent and widespread green notes are the drawback; otherwise the wine has a lot going for it.
