Dark, leathery and spicy on the nose with hints of paprika and caraway adding details. This smells like Goulash. Smooth and focused in the mouth with more cut that one typically finds in Montepulciano. The palate is lively and transparent with light fruit that sits firmly in the dry, black end of the spectrum. The acid is well integrated here and the tannins fairly polished yet still firm. finishing with good focus to the black cherry and spice flavors this is a bit subtle but quite fine and long with some finesse on the finish. 88pts
