The bouquet is hard, tight and full of tobacco and green beans. Right away you get the impression that maybe the fruit for this wine wasn't quite at its ripest. How else to explain the strong green character at the core and the lack of sweetness? That said, the feel across the palate is good, as is the color and tannins.
