A powerful, leathery nose of leather, tobacco and leather greet the nose, with crushed black pepper, blackberry and dark chocolate. The palate is almost entirely dark, with similar flavors, but it feels almost impenetrable in texture, so that the texture is also very present. The tannins are soft and the finish is long, but the wine tastes so much like a fine California red.
