Smells like hot ass, but after a few dozen swirls, it mellowed out. Definitely fruity, with medium to strong tannins.
Dark and dusty wine, some dark ripe black fruit, even a floral character to the aroma. Palate is fresh and fruity, astringent and simple. Leather and tar on the finish as well. Nice.
This a good value Cab if you can get it for $17. Has good balance of acid and tanin and will improve with age.
