Classic notes of black currant and leather waft up from the glass as long legs dribble down it, and the same flavor comes across in spades in the mouth. The touch is soft and smooth at first, but soon enough the tannins and alcohol kick in for a more rustic feel. Black pepper and vanilla join the party, too, and what appears to be a very direct wine at first keeps developing for a good long time – surprising and fun!
