Smells earthy, leathery and a bit gaseous before you get to a broad palate of stretched berry flavors, vanilla and herbal notes. There are good points here but also gaps in the wine, including a tomatoey quality to the flavor profile. Improves a bit with airing but still it struggles to make the grade.
