Though a bit restrained immediately upon opening, after a short while the nose reveals a bright berry mix, licorice, tobacco, and some light minerality. On the palate, it’s mostly the same, with balanced acidity and lingering tannins.
The nose offers mild fruit and a dusting of oak. On the palate it’s a bit tart, and could benefit from a little more body. A decent drinker for the price, though.
Smells and tastes very green, suggesting unripe fruit. Poorly made.
Rusty color. Smells like iron. Tastes metallic. On its way to vinegar.
A corked bottle. Normally, we would try another. But the sweet, jammy taste discouraged us from giving it another go.
