Edgy, a bit funky, could not be called elegant or polished, but it has tons of personality and real depth. Earthy, dirty, old school, somewhat Carignan-like in it’s wildness. Dried black fruits, suggestion of a baking hot climate. Full-bodied but not fat, surprisingly high acidity keeps it tight. Powerful tannins, serious structure, and outstanding flavor concentration. Normally I prefer wines to be cleaner and more precise but the complexity and distinctiveness just kept me coming back to the glass.
