The hue is the darkest of purple with an approachable light-bodied appearance. I got scents of dead twigs and tree bark. That woody, earthy character commands the nose and the palate. There's some muddy, trodden berry but it's mostly rustic and baked in flavour.
I can't say there's much body, ripeness or alcohol. I'm not down on this wine though. It's got a depth and boldness I enjoy. It's like a grumpy Beaujolais with a splash of earthy Cinsault.
