Nose seems a bit confused. Notes of eucalyptus, fresh leather, and spinach. Not terribly complex on the palate, and a tad chewy, but still nice, with blueberry, nut, white pepper, and cassis. Finishes evenly and nicely. Would pair nicely (although clash geopolitically) with eggplant parmesan. Recommended.
