N: Open. Earthy. Very earthy. We’re talking dirt, wet leaves, maybe a hint of tobacco and vegetation.
P: Ripe fruit and earth. Black pepper, black fruits, touches of tobacco. Reminds me of a dirty merlot. Distinctive, non-commercial flavor. Tannins are mild to medium, acidity is appropriate: enough for food, not too much to be overbearing. Alcohol is mild to medium and adds structure.
This is a kickass wine for the price, though not everyone will love the earthy character that melds with the black berry fruit. Try it, you’ll like it.
Enjoy with beef-based and wild mushroom dishes, or a plate of cheese.
