On the bouquet I get aromas of cranberry sauce, black raspberry, soil, plum, concrete, and mineral. There is a slight aroma of a metallic nature that I can't quite pinpoint, but I thought I would mention it as well.
On the palate the wine is quite mouth coating, although it's not thick or viscous, but just penetrating. I get flavors of black cherry, pomegranate, black plum, and a touch of marion berry. The texture is still perplexing to me and I think it may be a touch grainy or somewhat unfiltered.
This is nice wine and has pretty good depth but lacks just a touch of polish to be considered great. 87 points
