Deep, dark hue without much of a purple tint. The bouquet shows some canned corn notes amid the earthy, savoury black olive, black fruit and tar nuances, but it does lack freshness and primary fruit. A hint of raisin. The palate is full-bodied and chunky, with drying savouriness and a lot of grunt without a great deal of charm or detail. A tad overripe? For those who go for size over detail.
