Dark red color. Subtle nose, one really has to get after it to pick up much, but once there, red cherry, olive brine, pipe tobacco pouch, thyme, spearmint, putty. On arrival, medium tannin and medium acidity. Flavors echo the nose except that the fruit is backstage, recessed from the herbs and oak. OK finish. Bottle #1 of one.
