A very rich, earthy, smoky, tannic wine with lots of beautiful sour cherry. Nose was of sour cherry. Needs to be decanted or left open for some time -- tannins were too fierce when first opened but softened with time. Some smell of cranberries and dark berries when first opened. Note that it's very strong -- 14.5% alcohol.
