Toasted oaky vanilla on nose, something rather like moist molding clay hovering just over glass. Balsamic olives too, and cured meats on nose, giardiniera, maybe crushed/macerated woodsy rosemary?

Palate of dry dusty red fruits, still quite tannic, tannic, even with a half hour's decant. Pomegranate pith? With time and/or more decant, the suggestion of something closer to tart bing cherries. Prickly medium finish, and something quasi peppery, like juniper berries crushed between your teeth.

Little early to drink, but showing promise a few years down. And at $18 a pop, incontrovertible qpr :)
