Eucalyptus and clove (?) on the nose. On the palate, black cherry, blackberry, and a flavor between raisins and figs. The balance is a little off, with not quite enough acidity to match the fruit, but it's better than expected for such a low price.
undrinkable the first 30min...gains a little integrity with air time and can be appreciated in it's own very flat uni-dimension, eventually finds some nice licorice on the nose, but very astringent tannins on the finish, (sometimes leaving one loathing the courage for the next sip) alluding to a strong foundation upon which the mansion was never built (I've seen a few unfinished neighborhoods around here like that)....overall interesting enough for a cheap one night stand
