There's a depth and meatiness to the nose on this wine, with its black cherry, plum, clove and peppercorn aromas. But the wall of blockbuster tannins that hit the palate next make it difficult to discern any of the qualities beyond, and makes it too tight and chalky for what should be a softer, more integrated variety. May improve with age, once the edge drops off.
