Dark dark inky purple with a lovely bouquet. Very spicy, a hint of beef jerky, a little cassis. Significant tannins, heavy smoke and bitter chocolate. Not overly fruity. medium (medium short) finish. Overwhelmed grilled chicken on the first day, but it was a good match with a hearty pasta dish. Did not do so well sitting out in the glass. Overall: Savory, dense, and spicy, not that complex, but high QPR for heartier fare.
